    Ok, I know I can give raw liver to the chicks to help with protien levels and such so my questions is...

    When I start butcherin my meat rabbits, roosters, ect....would it be a bad thing to give all the insides to the chicks? All of it, liver stomach, gizard, intestine. I am thinking it is ok. I had a 11 week old chick eaten alive the other day and nothing on the inside was left. I have since uped the protien in the coop and it has been fine. So you see my questions. I just wanted to use every part of what I butcher to the fullest.

    I don't butcher, but have read others posts that they feed all the unwanted parts back to the chickens.

    Well just processed a rabbit and all the insides went to the 10 week old pen. And they LOVED IT. So, I guess it does not hurt and the protien has to be good.
