Can Chickens Eat Watermelon?

Just like human beings, chickens love watermelons. Watermelons are made up of 92% water which will help to keep your chickens hydrated.

The fresh and clean water in melons can add extra hydration essential for egg production.

When feeding your chickens watermelon, you can scoop some flesh at the middle which contains many seeds without worrying about removing the seeds.

Avoid feeding watermelon seeds to your baby chicks. Their digestive system is not fully developed to digest the seeds.

Never feed your chickens rotten/moldy melons. Mold contains mycotoxins which can cause serious health issues. Both the flesh and rinds should be fresh.
