I took a deer during the deer hunting season here and I processed it at home leaving me left with the carcass. I just drug it back into the woods thinking that the varmits would just take care of it. I did not think that I would walk back there and find my chickens pecking away at it. They have been doing a good job cleaning it up. I started thinking it is probably pretty good protein for them to eat, and good fuel for them since the weather is cold now.
