    Hi all,

    Does freshly killed poultry (duck and geese) need to be frozen for a length of time before being given to eat? And also are there any parts you do not feed like the intestines for instance and the beak?

    Thanks!

    The only whole prey animals I feed are rabbits and quail. I feed the whole thing – hair or feathers on, ungutted. Everything I get has been pre-frozen, I’m assuming if the prey wasn’t wild it’s probably okay to feed fresh but I’d personally freeze it first just to be safe. If I was feeding a chicken or something with thick long nails or a big beak I’d probably remove the nails and beak just to be safe. When I feed chicken feet I cut off the nails.

    They were shot locally I’m guessing wild duck and geese, not from a farm. I’m on a yahoo BARF list and sometimes folks give away some small prey! People will post when hunter friends have stuff to give away.

    As for the chia seed, I was putting it in the omega 3 rotation with krill oil. I was thinking some additional omega 3 will be needed to offset some omega 6 from the emu oil!!

    Thanks!
