    Threw out a backed chicken from publix that was bought last night. Someone forgot to put it back and ants swarmed it, so I didn't want it to go to waste when it's a perfect protein supplement for the girls. But boy, they went after that carcass like it was still alive. Litterally swiping the thing open with their feet, thrashing, tearing bits off, even swallowing bones WHOLE! It made me think that they really are the modern velociraptors! If they averaged out at 100 pounds we'd be running for our lives!

    Yeah--my girls enjoyed a nice chicken carcass today. When they were done, you couldnt even make soup out of it! They are truly little raptors!!

    My birds love chicken. My kids just don't like when they ask what's for breakfast the next day and I answer "cannibal eggs"![​IMG]

    Yeah, I'd say that's pretty gross. I refuse to allow my chickens to eat other chickens.

    Whatever you do NEVER NEVER fall down and black out in a chicken run. You might wake up missing an arm or leg or worse![​IMG]
