    about how much chickens love turkey....meat.
    My chooks have two pans of treats this morning, one holds the turkey carcass, the other the side dishes.
    They are going to town on the carcass and leaving the side dishes alone.

    Kind of sounds cannibalistic. I know chicken and turkeys are different but you can compare it to Irish humans eating Germans or maybe Italians. see where I'm going with this. Foul is foul. [​IMG]

    I know [​IMG] but it just seems weird to me.

    I agree that chickens eat what is available to them. They are not deterred by morals. That's a human thing.

  6. All birds seem to be this way, not just chickens. My parrots pretty much do the same thing. We call them little heathen cannibals.

    suprised they do not shrink each others heads !!
