    Don't know for sure, but mine will eat anything I give them. As long as the carcass isn't rotten or going bad, there should be no problem.

    stupid non-hunter question: do deer carry worms?

    Ever watched Jurassic Park? I've always thought of my chickens as little velicoraptors with feathers. Grasshoppers, frogs, snakes, mealworms, mice--if they can catch it--they'll try to eat it. I try to rescue the snakes, frogs, and toads, though.

    I'm just glad that I'm 15 times their size!
