can chickens eat loquats ?

 

Yes, the chicks can eat loquat, but in moderation and in a small amount, as only once a month is good and will not cause any problems for the chicks.

Loquat contains a large proportion of sugars, which may cause the chicks many health problems such as diarrhea and obesity.
It also contains a high percentage of acids. In fact, I do not like to give the chicken any fruits or vegetables that have a high percentage of acids because it may cause them problems in the digestive system.

I do not give loquat to the chicks because of the high sugar and acid content in the loquat, so the decision is yours in the end
