Greetings. I am in the "total useage" camp of farming and poultry. I would prefer not to waste anything! (after all, that is why I am doing this, and not relying on big box stores and factory farms) I have read lots of posts on people feeding the offal and entrails back to the flock. What is the safest way to do so? My plan was to not allow the slaughtered birds access to food for 12 hours in order to clear the system. During butchering save all the entrails / offal. Post butchering to boil it, then strain it off and make a slurry that I would mix in with their regular food.. Are there any health concerns, or safety concerns with this plan? Are their any parts that should be ELIMINATED before we feed it back? Additionally I will let the flock pick at the carcasses and bones once I am done boiling those off for stock. I apologize in advance to those members that are offended by the nature of this post.
