Hm. There’s a skeleton in the chicken yard.

Neighbor L likes to bring all her kitchen scraps, scraps by the bucketful, to feed the chickens. I, and certainly the chickens, think this is a very fine thing to do. And there’s nothing wrong with bones, chickens are definitely omnivorous.

I did get a moment’s pause when taking a turn through their yard this morning, though…


An intact chicken carcass, picked clean. I knew where it came from, in fact I probably dumped it there Monday without paying attention. But I did take a minute to count the chickens before I left…

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    They are officially cannibals then.

    Ben – Chickens are miniature Velociraptors. They will eat anything that doesn’t move fast enough, just like hogs will.

  3. Paul Joat says:

    I’ve had chickens decide that one of the other chickens wasn’t moving fast enough to be not food.

To the stake with the heretic!
