It is forbidden to feed Chametz to even a wild, disowned, animal. It goes without saying that is forbidden to feed Chametz to animals that he owns. Furthermore, it is forbidden to give one’s animal to a gentile caretaker during Pesach, if one knows for certain that the caretaker will feed Chametz to the animal.
May one feed ownerless Chametz to an animal?
If one’s animals only eat Chametz foods, what should he do with them over Pesach?
In such a case, one is to sell the animals to a gentile before Pesach, having them included in the Mechiras Chametz contract.
May one eat meat/eggs or drink milk from animals/chicken that were fed Chametz?
See Chapter 6 Halacha 9!
