    Made lunch from leftover chicken last night (roasted a whole chicken) and had my son clean up. He has a bright idea to give the chicken carcass to our girls.
    [​IMG] he comes running back in to tell me that they are devouring it and really seem to enjoy it [​IMG]
    Well I have to go and check myself and sure enough they had pretty much picked it cleaned. A few were still chasing each other around for the last few crumbs. Even the 7 week old babies were scarfing it up.

    One more thing to add to the chicken feed list.

    But, didn't mad cow disease come from cows being feed cows? It just doesn't seem healthy to feed chickens chicken.

    Quote:Chickens are great scavengers and would not hesitate to eat a deceased chicken: cooked or not.
