    We are big junk food fans around here
    mostly pizza and KFC
    do chickens eat this sort of stuff?
    It would be nice if the KFC scraps had somewhere else to go, but I was worried it might be unhealthy to them or something

    It's OK, but remember it is not any healthier for chickens, than it is for you. Small quantities occasionally.

    Too much salt can be bad for them, so if you've loaded your fries with salt, you might want to compost what you don't eat.

    hmm, we do not usually salt anything, we eat the fries as we get them
    but the fries are usually gone in no time, I was referring more to the chicken bones and skin
    is that unethical, chicken eating chicken?

    Chickens are meat eaters and appreciate meat of any type. I have given mine bones before and they pick all the meat and cartilage off and enjoy it. Pretty much chickens will eat anything as long as it is not spoiled and full of seasoning/spices I think you are ok.
