Okay, I know this sounds really gross, but I have read that a lot of people feed the offal from butchering their meat birds back to their laying chickens or their dogs. I have been looking into alternative methods to feed my meat chickens since commercial feed is getting so expensive. I'm looking into fodder and fermented feed. What do you guys think about freezing the offal from my first batch of meat chickens and using it as part of the feed for my next batch? Besides the yuck factor, do you think it would work? I won't have any laying chickens until spring and it seems like I might as well use the whole chicken to get maximum value out of it. Also, I'm brand new to chickens, so what age can you start feeding them stuff like meat scraps and veggies?
