Feeding squirrels to your chickens - Page 2

post #11 of 14

I was just looking out my window and saw four squirrels cleaning out the bird feeder.  Thought I'd check on here to see if anyone has done this.  As I am always looking for different things to feed my chickens, I wondered about thinning out the population of the squirrels a little bit. Hmmm  The squirrels venture into the pasture the chickens are in.  I wonder how long the squirrels will last once the chickens have tasted one...

I still haven't given it a try yet. Got busy starting a new part time job. Keep us posted if you give it a go.

I realize this is a year old, but I am Very excited about feeding squirrel to my chickens. I killed 54 squirrels last year just from my deck... our area is overrun and they need population control.

My girls are gonna have lots of protein! I thought about removing the intestines (not the heart, lungs, etc tho).

54 squirrels!!! Yes, it definitely sounds like an over population problem. Keep us posted please on how it works for you.
