When I was young, during WWII, we built a chicken coop and had our own chickens. It was really nice having those fresh eggs and some tender, young fried chicken. After we got rid of the chickens I turned the chicken house into a rabbitry.
After I retired from the Air Force I purchased a Feed & Seed store. We not only sold feed but also the chicken biddies and turkey pults. I would have people come in and tell me they chicken/turkey they killed to eat was too dry and strings. I would ask them what they were feeding and it would turn out they were only feeding laying mash/pellets. Without corn or chicken scratch the birds were not getting any feed to produce fat.
