      "Feed" is the best bet.
      I wouldn't use "fodder" for chickens. Fodder is grassy stuff for grazing
      animals (in its literal sense, leaving aside all the metaphorical meanings).

      "Chicken feed" is a standard collocation, and it appears as a separate entry
      in the Oxford English Dictionary, which defines it as "food for poultry".
      (Leaving aside, once again, the metaphorical meaning, "a paltry sum of money").
