    My chickens like scraps from the kitchens...
    When i close at work on the weekends i sometimes get to take home wraps and foccaicas that didn't sell that day (if i didn't they end up in the bin)
    and they normally consist of either chicken, beef or turkey....

    i've raised chickens for 5 yrs now and i've realised.... darn they just love their meat!

    Does anyone else feed their chickens meat?

    Ooooooh yesss! I never waste any meat (just the way I've been brought up, it all goes for soup), but I do have a neighbour who chucks out loads and passes it on. I boil it up with the vegetable peelings. I put in nettles as well and they just love it. They have ham tomorrow!!
    I try to pick up any bones when I shut them up not to encourage foxes.[​IMG]

    Mine love meat as well... it's so funny cause when they have a piece in their mouth they go around growling... running from the other chickens [​IMG]

    Man it seems just WRONG... but my grandmother did it and if yall say it's okay... why not? I waste a lot of meat otherwise.
    I wonder how people taste? Ha ha. Just kidding just kidding. Sick humor.

    Well chickens are omnivores, and they really take the "omni" to heart! [​IMG]
