I pulled off the skin (with feathers still attached) because I didn't want a bunch of feathers blowing around the yard. Does your dog actually eat the feathers? Or does the dog pull them off and then eat the chicken?Mine will eat them with feathers on. They know not to mess with them when still warm with life. To my dogs, the dead chickens involve a different set of rules compared to live chickens.
I agree, live chickens have a different set of rules: only people are allowed to grab them and kill them (not dogs.)
