    I get that they eat bugs. And bugs are a great source of protein. BUT, I don't like the idea of chickens eating themselves or of eating an animal they could not normally kill themselves. I'd like their diet to be as close as possible to what they could forage themselves, if possible.

    Mine eat snakes and lizards all the time they love em

    And I assume they are able to kill them on their own. My point was if they can't kill the meat on their own (such as a cow or other large animal), then I'd rather not feed them that particular thing.

  • Jeremy Childrey

    you may be right but I've heard of chickens killing and eating mice and everything. MY family has been raising chickens for years and trust me chickens can and will eat about anything With out harm.

  • Tamara D'Agata Malecki

    Like I said, if the chickens can kill it, they can eat it. I'm okay with that. I'm sure that beef, pork, and other chickens are fine for them to eat. I just don't like the IDEA of feeding a chicken another chicken nor any other animal they could not kill themselves.

    Wow! I have 3 old hens that have not produced in a year. They have been good to me...so I shall in turn be good to them, by allowing them to live out until they go naturally. This is heartless and shameful! They are not just producers for me, they are my girls.

  • Mandy May Davis

    I agree with Kayla. I keep my old girls as pets.
