    I was wondering if anyone knew of any parasites or other health problems chickens can get from eating leftover chicken?
    They seem to love it. Cooked of course. I was curious if even after cooking would any diseases cross from the factory birds we eat to them?

    I have given my birds left over tukey noodle soup.

    THe chickens went for the meat, the geese went for the veggies and the ducks ate what was left and played in the broth [​IMG]

    I don't think it's a problem. I've fed mine chicken occasionally for years.

    Imp-course didn't cows get mad cow disease from eating cow. If your chickens start showing signs of mad chicken disease- RUN [​IMG]
