    I have a couple pork steak leftovers that apparently sat out all night and I was thinking of just throwing them away. Will chickens eat pork? Do they even eat meat at all?

    To say the least chickens eat chicken. They eat meat for sure and seem to rather enjoy it.

    If you haven't given them meat before get the camera ready. Mine turn into carniverous hawks when you give them meat. Super cute to watch them running around tearing at a piece of steak. They LOVE it. Have fun.

    Yep they will love it. I haven't found much that they won't eat.

    Yep, this is exactly what I do with meat scraps that are accidentally left out overnight. Last week the girls got two pork chops that we forgot to put up. I put mine in suet feeders and hang them off the fence of the run and the girls go nuts picking at it until all the meat is gone. You'll just want to be careful about salt, and maybe toss them if they are heavily salted.

    You guys weren't kidding, they went nuts. That was pretty fun watching them, they were thrilled.
