    Yes! Chickens are omnivores so they can and will pick that bone clean.

    When I make broth/stock, I tend to let the chicken/turkey carcass simmer for about 12 hours...by the end of that, the bones themselves literally crumbed with a little pressure. I throw the whole thing (bones, bits of meat, onions and other veggies) into the run, and I never find any remnants.
