    I make lots of soup stock, so the chickens get chicken carcasses, pork neck bones, turkey carcasses etc- they will pick the carcasses clean!

    By the way, it doesn't have to be cooked.

    Unless it's a processed bird from your own closed flock, I recommend cooking any poultry before offering it to chickens, as otherwise it could be a disease vector (to your birds).
