    My 60 chickens can pick a roasted rabbit clean in under 5 minutes, they can and will do the same to any leftover chicken! After it's cooked, I say it's fair game!

    The hens never told me what happened to Timothy. The feed had run out and that rooster had been looking a little under the weather . . . .

    I fed some left over ckicken scraps to my flock and it worked well as a threat. "Mr. Randy Roo, if you don't behave yourself I'm going to cook you up and feed you to the rest of the flock." I didn't have any trouble from him for another week.
