    I am wondering if after I have slaughtered a chicken or two, if any of the innards or the crop is something that is appropriate to feed to the other chickens. I watched a few youtube videos where this one guy was cutting open the crop and tossing it into the coop. I wasn't sure about that. Plus the innards thing...we don't eat any of that. The gizzard or liver or anything that looks "creepy"...lol. But the little dinosaurs, I mean chickens, may eat those things right? I figure if they will tear apart a field mouse or a shrew, then their sisters guts can't be too bad right? LOL I just figured it may be easier than burying them in the fire pit!

    You can feed back the hearts and livers (if you don't eat them yourself). That's all I'd feed back myself.
