please don't judge what i'm about to ask, im an animal person, but sometimes i need to get rid of the extra roosters, especially when i want to start breeding birds to sell. i'm getting into silkies as well as pekins, and some of the larger breeds, my family is planning on eating the larger roosters, but i was wondering does any one know if silkie meat is okay to feed to dogs, since it is black? i will be making sure the birds are humanely processed as well as cut into pieces so that the dogs can't notice the similarity to "mum's birds" and their food. but is the black meat on silkies okay for a dog to eat?

Silkie meat is also a delicacy and used in some chinese medicines. There is a abattoir down in Victoria that specialises in them so you may be able to make some money out of them instead of just using them for dog food.

meat is meat. dogs are dogs, they eat anything they are scavengers.... and don't fool yourself that they wont know what it is simply cos you cut it up, their life is their sense of smell.

thanks, i was worried there might be a toxin in silkie's bodies that caused the flesh to be black. yes well i had a little shitzu who lived on regular dog food, that was really gross sometimes, she passed away from a heart attack, and since then i've been looking into dr pottenger's guinea pigs, and found it all very interesting, and not a surprise, he also did studies on cats too. i'm not going to start experimenting on dogs if anyone is wondering, just want to make sure everyone is healthy over here. :-D

The quickest way to clean them is to skin them. That way you don't spend ages pulling feathers out of something that is only dog food.

I wouldn't bother cutting up the chickens either. Maybe just half or quarter them, depending on the size of the meal you want to give. Eating chicken won't make your dog want to kill the chickens :)

i didn't think it would, considering that most dog foods have chicken in them, and my previous dog was never interested in eating my chooks. she was allowed to hang out with them, but only when i was around, she usually just followed them and around and smelt them, then she usually wanted to go back inside after that. :-D

When I have excess I just lop the heads and feet off, skin them roughly and feed them whole to our critters.

if you are brave enough, you should try eating them.
i use them for soup as the skin is very thin and they have hardly any fat.

i don't think my younger brothers would be too keen about that idea, they already complain when i start being naturopathic with their colds and flus, black chickens might be asking way too much for them. :biggrin:

You can't tell the colour of the meat after it's been stir-fried, stewed, souped, curried, risotto'd, or pasta sauce'd. It tastes exactly the same as any other free-range chook. Don't tell them, and they won't know. It's not THAT black (not half as black as the bones!).

by all means feed to the dogs, but feel free to use it yourself for stuff other than roasts.
