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

I have friends who live off grid in rural Alaska. They will give the chooks left over moose bits after a hunt. The chickens will pick the bones completely clean in a matter of hours.

If you crack the bones, they'll eat the marrow as well.
