    it's illegal to feed your chickens meat due to the possibilities of salmonella. However chickens are omnivores and will happily eat meat if given it. I compromise and feed mine mealworms etc.

    The favourite 'meat' of my chooks are earthworms. We may not always think of them as such, but many birds love them and they are the food of bird proverbs...."The early bird catches the worm" etc. My chickens will eat any of my carnivorous pets' food, cat food, dog food...in fact anything given half a chance!
