OK. So went into the garden yesterday and saw my chickens eating a backbird which I figure either they or a cat killed. I am aware that they are obviously carnivores, ( have witnessed one swallow a whole mouse a few years back) but, feel a little worried about the eggs. If the bird had anything nasty, would this pass along the food chain? We ate one, and I thought hmm, and ditched the other laid that day, but am wondering if I should do a longer withhold, or if I am just being plain silly!
