    I know chickens will eat anything but I'm afraid that if I give them left over chicken with the bone they will choke on it. They are SUCH pigs. They look at the cat and you can just hear them wondering if she will taste like watermellon! I know they would jump on the bones like I hadn't feed them in the last week and I have seen them swallow a pretty big frog in one gulp.
    Does anyone feed chicken with the bone?

    yup, fed them the whole carcass from a rotisserie chicken, they pick it clean in a few hours, you can do the same w/ the turkey @ thanksgiving, they will love you for it & won't choke @ all. Great way to boost protien intake!
