I was just reading the post about feeding chicken to birds, then it kind of drifted into a discussion about PETA... while it was kind of interesting, I've decided to with hold comment on that, and thought I'd start a new thread to ask this question. It seemed weird to post something about chicken in the other thread, considering the topic had drifted, haha
I'm wondering if your birds are eating cooked or raw bones. I'm coming at this from a perspective of a dog owner feeding a raw diet where poultry bones are safe fed raw, but of course never cooked. If fed cooked, they will splinter and have potential to seriously harm a dog.
(A note to whoever posted in the other thread relating it to dogs... actually, most dogs will do better eating the smaller bones, given that they don't swallow them whole. The larger, weight-bearing bones (thigh, etc) are a lot more difficult to chew and digest - typically the neck, back, ribcage, and wings are the easiest on them).
If they are fed cooked, what is the potential of injury? I notice someone mentioned that their birds only cracked the bones to eat the marrow, and someone mentioned crop damage, which is what I'd be worried about. However, birds probably don't have the digestive capacity to eat raw...?
