Hi all! I'm a new member here, adore the site and have learned a lot from it. I've got 2 older hens- bout 2.5 years- and have kind of an odd question.
I know that my girls are omnivores, but is it safe and/or advisable or not to give chickens the leftovers from a poultry stock? It's a mix of chicken and turkey, with onions, carrots, mixed leftover greens (celery, chive greens, little cilantro...) and various herbs- oregano, thyme, basil, etc... Very little salt was added. Was simmered on low for ~16 hours before cooling and separating.
Now I'm left with ~3lbs plus of waste that I normally throw away (I know, I know, I need a compost pile!). Should I refrigerate it and ration it out as added protein? Remove the onions and bones first?
I've done some looking and have found contradictory results. So, what are your opinions? It's always nice to get some fresh perspectives over ones posted years ago.
