    Sure you can, but I usually give them to my ducks first.[​IMG]

    Sure I do! They love the stuff [​IMG]
    Especially picking any leftover stuff from inside the shells, they can clean out a whole dish of leftovers.

    My girls turn into dinosaurs when I bring out the meat !! Their favorites to date are shrimp and bass! We had a large amount of frozen fish earlier this summer, that unthawed when our freezer bit the dust. They were still very cold, but didn't want to eat them, so I baked up a couple of large pans of fish, and doled it out over several days. The girls loved it !

    Here in Texas, there's no such thing as leftover shrimp. BUT my chickens do get all the peelings. They turn into maniacs while they eat, nay, devour the legs (and sometimes the tail).

    They do love shrimp. Raw, cooked or just the shells.
