I'm always reading about people wondering what treats are ok to feed and I've read that chickens are close to vultures on the aviarain(sp?) scale, not sure if that is true or not. But anyway, I caught a couple of mice I found hiding under some boards outside and I stepped on them yesterday and threw them into the run and the flock went to town, just like any other cricket or bug I give them. So I was wondering about larger predators. When I was in my trapping phase, I just shot, killed, and threw away. So my question is couldn't I have just thrown the possium, raccoon, or etc in for my chickens to eat?
