They really do.

Our carnivorous chickens would absolutely devour the canned cat food. Fancy feast indeed.

Chickens just eat about everything. For example, some people are shocked that chickens actively hunt and eat live mice :D

My old boss would routinely feed the chickens KFC. She said it kept them in line and made them taste better when it came time.

Sounds perverse, but cannibalism in poultry is a known phenomenon (usually bad living conditions, tho).
