Topic Progress:

Some salt is included in the commercial feed given to chickens, even though they don’t require it as part of their diets. Occasional treats can contain some salt but shouldn’t be overdone as too much salt intake can cause health problems for the chicken. When it gets hot, make sure your chickens have plenty of water if or when salt supplements are given. In the winter, make sure the water doesn’t freeze over, as it can be fatal.
