    Ok, I have a question. I watched the video and I'm wondering how that gets processed into dog food. Could a dog eat that raw?

    Does anyone do anything like that with their home flock with unwanted roos? I'm thinking my dog would enjoy the meat, but it would have to be processed like that to be safe for him to eat (hollow bones).

    Any thoughts?

    Its bad enough that they do that in hatcherys already.

    There was a video being sent around by some animal rights groups yesterday that showed the process. They definitely use more than just the eggs for dog food.

    I'm just wondering if anyone else does this for feeding other pets like cats or dogs.
