    Found my girls fighting over a mostly-decomposed rat carcass one day. Blech!

    I threw a whole raw skinned duck to the dogs one day and my 6 hens chased them off and ate the ENTIRE thing themselves. They also scarf down raw deer meat and bone marrow any chance they get- usually stealing it from the dogs.
