I had never really thought about it. The scraps just go in to the chicken bowl. We rarely eat chicken or turkey, but at Christmas I chucked the turkey carcass to the chickens, as per instructions here. They loved it. Hubby was mortified. Last night I snuck the leftover chicken scraps to them. But it did make me stop and think for a minute. So, what is the real dirt on this feeding chickens chicken thing?
