    Yes, that's fine. Not raw potatoes or raw peelings though. (They can have peelings, but you need to cook them first.)
    Of course mashed potato isn't nearly as entertaining as giving them cooked leftover spaghetti. :D

    I'm sure they think the spaghetti is worms as they go absolutely bonkers over it and chase each other round the garden squabbling over it. It's hilarious!

    My mum always saved any peeling or spuds and boiled them up in a big stinky pan, they absolutley loved it and thrived on it too...they were spoilt little chickens :D

    Make sure they have access to grit so they don't get bunged up with the mash though :)
