    My husband fed my chickens, chicken. Is this ok? They gobbled it up before I could do anything. Should I be worried?

    It's higher protien than they should have on a regular basis, but chickens can and do cannibalize sometimes from my understanding. I don't think it will hurt them but wouldn't want to make a habit out of it.

    There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with feeding chicken to chickens. Or scrambling eggs to feed to chickens. Or feeding any meats which aren't salted to chickens.

    As treats, not in replacing their balanced feed.

    There is nothing as sick as watching the raptor come out in a flock of mild mannered hens when you throw a turkey carcass in with the girls.

    They will be fine.

    [​IMG] omg my poor cannibals [​IMG] I freaked out, I said omg honey why would you do that, and he's just laughing at me so hard he's crying. I was chasing my chickens yelling dont eat that! Came back inside almost in tears cause I thought it was going to hurt my babies. Now I can't quit laughing. [​IMG] I swear that would have made one heck of a you tube video. [​IMG]

    I always throw the carcass from a leftover roast to the chooks. They can strip that thing down in minutes!
