    :/Hi there. My name is John Scalido. I am from Alabama. I used to buy chicken from a Farmer about 10 miles from my residence. Recently I have learnt that he feeds his broilers with broiler chicken meat! i.e. He is using dead broilers, grinds them up to a mash and then feeds them to his broilers. I have stopped buying from him. Is this possible can you feed broilers with broiler meat. This is cannabalism, isn't it. I have now also learnt that this is a common practice in the industry. He is also obviously making a killing because he drives a brand new landrover and a mercedes benz worth about $200,000 each.
