I really don't think so, they have such different requirements..why not try freecycling the dog food?

If you have a Pets at Home near you they have a donation point for unwanted food. Or maybe the Dogs Trust would like it

Maybe put a label on it?
Really not a good idea to give it to your chickens, anyway, Dye. For one thing, it wouldn't have enough calcium as dogs don't need it to make strong shells on the eggs they don't lay!

Most rescue centres would be very glad of it. Even if you were to empty it into a sack, and write on it what it is.
Lead me not into temptation. I can find the way myself!
