Occasionally we have food that has been in the refrigerator longer that we prefer. Like right now, the wife says to throw this chicken out because it has been in the refer a few days. If we are concerned about it being spoiled, should I give it to the chickens? Do they know what is safe for them? In the wild, I am sure they come across spoiled meat quite often, and yet they survive. Can their system handle it better than we humans can? How about other food items that we discard because we are concerned about it being safe for us to eat?
