    Just curious - we have two bags of raw shrimp tail on that is freezer burnt beyond where we want to eat them. Could I bake them up and give them to the chickens whole?

    I would put a few out raw and see if they'll eat them. I give mine the tails for extra Ca and they are always eaten.

    Some loved them, and some could care less. LOL But glad it's good calcium, as one is lacking it.

    Next time, the ones that turned their noses up will be tearing them to pieces. They are little garbage cans and will eat just about everything you put in front of them.

    I only threw out a half dozen or so yesterday, so I might just give each one today. I have two large bags of them, so they will get a special treat every week for a while :)
