    I will be butchering my first chickens in a few days. Yesterday i purchased a couple of pigs as well. Can I give the guts to the pigs? Are there any that can not be given to them?

    I would not give them intenstines unless they were cleaned, and it's not worth the effort.

    We elect to not feed meat to our pigs, just so we can say with 100% certainty our pigs are not fed pig.

    I would cook them first ,pigs that eat raw meat are more likely to eat their own babies

    My pig was wild caught and I try to keep from feeding her any meat. She is normally in among my fainting goats, and I am afraid that if she ate meat she might try her hand at "hunting" on her own. Feral hogs are known to kill and eat birds that they can catch, calves, deer fawns, and anything else they have a prayer of stumbling on and catching. Although vegetarianism isn't my cup of tea, it is for my hog.

    I don't feed raw chicken to my dogs either. Seems like once they get a taste for birds, they are more likely to try to catch one.
