it is illegal here in the u.k to feed chicken kitchen scraps. is it the same everywhere?
Heh! You probably got some chicken that was cooked in oil that had already been used to cook some fish....I remember when I was stationed in the UK in the early 80's I had Kentucky fried checken that tasted like fish though!
Thanks for the info.Following the outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) in 2001, the Government introduced a ban on the feeding to animals of catering waste that contains or has been in contact with animal by-products (ABPs). This ban was subsequently reflected by the EU Animal By-Products Regulation and became mandatory in all Member States. Catering waste is defined as 'all waste food including used cooking oil originating in restaurants, catering facilities and kitchens, including central kitchens and household kitchens'.
ive heard they like pasta, i will have to try it.Rob - I'm in the UK and manage to avoid the kitchen scrap police... they love our kids' crusts and other leftovers - we don't give them any chicken-related leftovers and nothing with obvious sugary or salty content (ie any leftover processed food). When we have spuds or pasta, we shove an extra portion in and give it to the girls - I don't see these as 'kitchen scraps' as they are cooked specially with them in mind! (DEFRA may have a different opinion...)
