    I'd keep all the useful innards like liver, kidneys, etc and freeze them in portions. Then just before feeding them to the birds I'd boil them.
    I'm not sure if this precaution is necessary, but it's a shame to waste good protein while feeding birds stuff bought at shops. [​IMG]

    Quote:Same here. Keep in mind that chickens are natural scavengers--they'd eat the pig carcass if they found it naturally. I'd cook, freeze, and share throughout the winter!
