    Around here, the dogs don't have a chance at getting table scraps. Buzzards tremble in terror when these girls start eating.

    They snatch and throw food everywhere.

    These girls don't mess around! Took them less than 5 minutes to strip this carcass.

    Great photos! We also give our birds bones to pick the bits of meat off. They turn from nice gentle birds to savages LOL

    Do ya reckon they know what they're eating? Lol! Like "Mmm, what do ya reckon this is?" But they're so pretty! We give ours bones, too, and they run all over the place with shreds of meat... lol!

    I was actually wondering the other day if I would feed leftover chicken to my chickens. [​IMG]

    When I had ducks, on thanksgiving we would feed the turkey/duck carcass to them. [​IMG]

    This is probably a stupid question but, is it a cooked or uncooked carcass? :O

    Cooked. They'll eat just about anything-except broccoli.
