    I think my chickens are zombies!! Lol No...seriously they like to eat deer and deer brains. My husband got a deer recently and in the process of cleaning it lost some deer brains on the ground. He thought he got it all up, but the chickens found some and we couldn't get it away from them. Is that safe? They also like to eat deer blood. Wouldn't it be considered protein? What is your thoughts on the topic?

    Nothings wrong with chickens eating a lil bit of meT.
    Its actually natural.They eat meat 50 percent of the time when bugs are out.

    Mines have had chicken before,lol.I dont really agree on random meat feeding.

    Ours always get deer scraps. We give them the whole rib cage. They pick it clean. Its good for them and they love it.
