Well, keep in mind chickens are not mammals and are not included in potential issues that result in feeding mammals. Once the bones are cooked to mush it's a good way to complete the circle. Keeping them healthy and happy is the main goal yes?
As far as feeding chickens other chicken products - chickens will do it on their own if you let you guard down.
When some of our dogs started having health problems, we found out that they have food allergies so we have been cooking for them. Roast turkey and chicken are the two main ingredients of their diets so we get a ton of bones.
Now we are drowning in stock! Thanks for the ideas here. It sounds like I can use it for a lot more than I thought.
It is raining here so I thought I would make.........stock!
I've been reading up on MP good chicken stock and with a 3 day weekend I wanted to clean out the freezer to make room for the up coming hunting season. I have 3 roos simmering right now. Will pick the meat off the bones, put the carcasses back into the water that the roos were cooking in and start adding the veggie peelings I have saved up to start the stock. Never too early to start getting ready for the winter.
Old thread I know but thanks all for the info! Currently dry-brining our first home-raised chicken (a 5.5 month old Swedish Flower cockerel) and I'm excited to slow-roast him and make stock. Maybe I'll learn to make myself some healthy soups finally lol.
I like chicken curry. Chicken Curry is a variety of dishes originating in the Indian subcontinent that use a complex combination of spices or herbs, usually including ground turmeric, cumin, coriander, ginger, and fresh or dried chilies, Curry is generally prepared in a sauce. you can also add some monosodium glutamate(msg) seasonings to enhance the flavor of curry.
