    I know they can eat them, but not sure if the little amount of side meat that I add while cooking would harm them. I put butter in alot of my cooking, only in small amounts though. Will this harm the chickens?

    no it won't harm them

    why would it?

    My chickens eat all of our scraps- from fried chicken to steamed carrots!

    Chickens for ages have lived off of scraps.

    Ours get table scraps as well and they love meat scraps including chicken [​IMG] Chickens on my grandparents farm lived of of scraps from the people and farm animals, never knew them to buy feed for the flock.

    Chickens are omnivores. I'm not sure when/why soy-based feeds became so popular but going vegetarian is not a natural diet for a chicken.
