    I have a lone hen turkey with my chickens. I feed them lots of leftovers and they love it. I've been hesitant about feeding them leftover cooked turkey. I hate to throw it away and we've eaten it at several meals. Does anyone know if I can feed this to my chickens and my turkey.

    I feed leftover cooked chicken to my chickens all the time. As long as it is well cooked, it is not a problem. When I cook a whole chicken in the crock pot, I'll pull off all the fat and gristle and give that to them, too. They LOVE it. All the meat scraps from the kitchen go to the birds. :)
