    I was cleaning some fish and the chickens were "watching" so I threw them a piece . To my surprise they acted as though it was the most delectable treat they've ever had. Any harm with this ? They are very well fed so they are not starving.

    Welcome to BYC. I dont recommend it. It only takes one tiny bone to puncture the esophagus or crop.
