So is it wrong to feed my Chickens, Chicken Alfredo ? I got them for fresh eggs and the cheaper I can feed them the more I save. They are scavengers. They will eat anything from bugs to small children.

Help me win this argument.

Gotta love the off season.

If you're looking to spawn "mad chicken disease" go for it.

It is not uncommon for some of the larger chicken processing plants to grind up the parts of the chicken they cant use into a mead.

They then feed that to the other chickens

the first sentence of this thread makes it appear as if you are asking someone named "chicken alfredo" if it is wrong to feed your chickens. comma fail.

That sounds like great idea. I wouldn't look to large animal processing plants for clues on hoe to raise something you actually want to eat.

So you are coming at this from 2 angles. I like that.

On a moral level it may be wrong but on a fiscal level could it cause health problems or is meat just meat ?

Maybe not, but you have to bet that if those dogs were starving, they'd eat each other.

I asked my mom and dad awhile back, "Mom, Dad, you guys are getting older now, and I want to ask...if you were ever snowed in and stranded inside your home and ran out of food, would you eat your dogs?" "No, absolutely, not!", said my mom. "You do realize they'll eat you, right?"

My parents don't like me sometimes.

I had two dogs (brother and sister) who would eat their own feces. That's sort of the same thing, when you think about it.

Honestly, poo-eating was a non-starter for me. I love dogs, and I have (and have had) some great ones. But don't try and lick my hand when you have poop between your teeth. I can deal with a lot of things; but not that. We kept them for about a year, and we gave them to a little, old couple who spent nine months out of the year traveling in their RV. These were little, yappy dogs (not my favorite), so they've probably had full, wonderful lives - lives in which they've eaten scat in all fifty states.

I would be in favor of grinding up all the little yippy dogs in the world (especially chihuahuas) and feeding them to bigger, more respectable dogs.

My current dog (Boris the angry Bulldog) concurs. He is the eater of kidneys - the ripper of jugulars. Fear him.

Few have ever experienced the fear of seeing Boris the angry Bulldog this close. This is what you would see just before those incisors penetrated your jugular. In essence, if this view was not a picture, you would be about to bleed out.

Fear Boris. Just fear him.

I have two dogs. One will eat anything that hits the floor. The other is the weirdest dog I've ever had. He won't eat organ meats. He doesn't like scraps of fat. No turkey. He'll sniff at it and then look up at me like, "What's wrong with you, dude?" The other dog is going snarf, snarf, snarf.

I wouldn't feed my chickens chicken meat just because it would give me the creeps.

BTW, Boris is an excellent name for a bulldog. :thumbs:

Don't get a pug!!! I hate those buggers!!! Go all the way in and get yourself a bull terrier (the mini if you want). The best bread ever!!! Mine is just 9 months old but make me laugh like no other.

This is how he usually takes his naps... and when he is taking his naps he plays it deaf and will just give you that "Sup?!" look every time I find him chilling by the recliner.

My sister has a pug. We were out back one day and the shovel I had leaned against the house fell over on him and his eyeball popped out. Took him to the vet and he tells me it happens all the time ?? What kinda dog is this ? Eyeballs just pop out and then you just pop them back in.

Pugs are okay. Bull Terriers are good, too. I love English Bulldogs, though. Boris is our second (Athena was the first, may she rest in eternal peace). If you can get past the farting, they're incredible.

We also have a little Yorkshire Terrier, for my little girl. I never thought I would have done it, but I just bought her a bark collar. It's the best investment I've ever made. I just can't stand yapping dogs. When I consider how long some of these little dogs naturally live, I can't help but feeling a little depressed.

Yeah, I think that's pretty common. They have those bulgy eyes. If I ever had a Pug, I would name him Marty Feldman. It's a good thing he was never around you when you shoveling in your backyard.

for me, tied for first place, it's Siberian Huskies and Labrador Retreivers.

all other breeds are waaaaay behind these two. little yappy ratdogs are at the very bottom of the list.

Right there with ya Dom. Our dog delights in feasting on his own poo as well. Tragically, he is a mastiff/Dane mix, so picture the size of those turd muffins. Added bonuses are a) his massive jowls that store the excrement, and various other disgusting droplets of delight for almost constant depositing, and b) his complete defiance of personal space. Most glorious of all, however, has to be the yummy dung belch one millimeter from my grill.

I too can put up with a lot (see: husbandís apparent dish rinsing paralysis or the 5 hours of torture that is getting my 4 year old dressed and ready for the day), but with a baby and a little dirt farmer preschooler who refuses to wash her hands, the poo eating is pushing me over the edge.

I feel terribly because heís such a sweet, gentle, loving guy, but when I start to think about the potpourri of fecal bacterial diseases he could be carrying like the lovely parvo or giardia or a myriad of worms or salmonella, I want to ship him off on a slow boat to China. Not sure what to do.

There are products you can buy that supposedly make them stop doing it. I tried a few, with no success. But I have some friends who tried them, and it worked like magic. I guess it just depends on the dog. That is a total shame, though. I love Great Danes and Bull Mastiffs. That has to be one big dog.

I had a Huskie at my farm when I was little. He went blind... and as soon as he did his temper changed. We asked at the vet if this is something that's common among the breed (the going blind part), and apparently it is. It's a high energy dog... so you have take that into consideration when buying one. I am used to this kind of breed because of my Bully and past Bull. Either way... they are a beautiful breed... but they do tend to go blind at an early age. (Most breads have genetic problems either way).

The labrador... it just got too common for my like. Still... as a breed it's great in a family environment.

My favorite breed... apart from the Bull Terrier... it has to go the German Shepard. Awesome breed!!! If you have the space for one... they are like no other!
