    I had a rotisserie chicken carcass and i tossed it into the run today without thinking much.. Actually, i thought protein,,, that's good.

    Now i'm wondering if they can pick up diseases etc from it. Did i just give them
    "mad chicken disease"? or some such caniballistic beastie?[​IMG]

    Nope . . . they'll be fine and love the protein. There's few things chicken love more than chicken. [​IMG]

    After I'm through simmering my chicken and turkey bones for a day or two for stock, I throw them to the hens. The bones have softened up and they actually eat them. I guess that's a good way to get minerals!
