    I know that it has been asked before, but is it OK for chickens to eat their own kind? I have leftover cooked chicken nearly every week from our Sunday lunch, is it OK for them to eat it?

    I make sure all the grease is drained good and in a casserole dish bring the carcass out and by the end of the day it is just bones. If they do not flip it over I break the carcass in half and flip it over for them to continue. They will devour it. [​IMG] Great scrap after dinner treat!!
