To give chickens chicken ? I dopped a piece of chicken on the floor while eating dinner & one of my white rock hens flew over & gobbled it up. I was absolutely astonished !! Ive heard of chickens being cannibal like & pecking at each other & what not but - a chicken eating a piece of cooked chicken !? Would it be cruel if i gave it to them as a treat every once & a while if they enjoy it ?
