    I have some frozen lobster meat that has a bit of ice crystals on it.(the container must not have sealed well)
    Can the roosters eat the thawed lobster meat?
    For little treats?

    mississippifarmboy collects slightly damaged strays

    And to think most people think I spoil my chickens. Never gave them a lobster dinner yet.
    I've never heard anything about feeding lobster to chickens, anyone else know?
  3. Atleast someone should enjoy it beside the garbage can.

    Freezer burn affects texture, taste and micronutrients, but freezer burned meat is not dangerous to eat and it would still be a source of supplemental protein.

    Just make sure they have a little bowl of butter to go with it.[​IMG]

    I dunno, I'd probably eat it myself if it was just a bit of ice crystals on it!

    I'd go ahead and give it to them. Crab leg left overs, crab shells, shelfish shells/bits, shrimp shells/heads never seem to have been an issue... they actually swallow some of the smaller shell bits.
  9. I definitely think I would cook it first!!!

    The roosters really enjoyed it and I had so much fun watching them try something new.
    They really didn't care much for the caviar though and I think I may have lost my Mother of Pearl Spoon to them forever.
    Roosters, what are you going to do?[​IMG]
