Can Chickens Eat Bananas?

If you own chickens, then you already know that they will at least try to eat anything that you place within pecking distance. However, some things are better for your chickens’ health than others.

What about bananas? Can chickens eat bananas and banana peels?

Yes, they can!

As a general rule, chickens can eat pretty much anything that a human can eat, and that includes bananas. Even the peels are edible by both humans and chickens. Banana peels are actually very high in fiber, and may even cause your chickens to produce eggs with a slightly better look and taste to them.

Some breeds of chickens care for bananas more or less than other breeds, so you’ll have to try it out and learn the appetites of your particular chickens.
