Took chicken out of the freezer.

Put it into the sink. we are having record breaking temps here....got to 95, it did :)

went to bed. it was still in the sink when we got up.

wish someone would create a chicken part that automatically puts itself away when the owner is having a moment.

can i feed it to the dogs?

Sure. My dog often leaves her chicken leg out on the lanai overnight and will eat it the next morning or even the next evening - and thats in Florida. She'll also bury bones and chew on them a week or two later.

Yes, Feed it. I ALWAYS take food out of the freezer 12 hours before feeding time and put it in a plastic container on top of the freezer. Even if it has some odor to it, its ok to feed. I feed "ripe" chicken pretty regularly during these hot months.

Re, we are in the same heat area and I always leave meat out overnite in the sink to thaw otherwise it is not ready to eat the next day if I leave it in the fridege to defrost. My garbage gut always eats it no problem with no issues, and Leo will smell it first, then lick it then eat it.

I do that pretty regularly. On purpose too! I wouldn't hesitate to feed it.

I'm just up the hill from you and it got to be about 98 degrees here yesterday. LOVING it!!! Anyway, I left some pork roasts out on the counter for longer than I would feel comfortable eating. But I have no qualms about giving them to Ania. Her stomach was made to eat old meat. Mine, not so much...:biggrin:

Just thought I'd let you know I'm still pretty new and did this also. I left a whole bag of quarters out so a good few days worth of food. I fed it no problem. It smelled bad but not horrible and the dogs could have cared less. No belly problems from it either.

i thank you for this..and i know it's a time thing that i'm going to have to get used to.....

in my head i know it.....but it smells bad and i cannot feed it....i can barely touch it.....

yet, i will examine poop with intense scrutiny.

go figure.

Totally understand. I felt queezy a little bit myself touching it just thinking of it. Fortunately the dogs had no qualms about eating it. They are braver than I am. I was all over this forum searching for answers before I was willing to risk it.

it's slimy and it smells icky.

in my head, i know their stomach juices are way acidic and able to handle....and maybe in a few months, i'll be able to do this...

but for now, i've only left one thing out and one thing i kept too long in the fridge where it got all icky and slimy....so i'm doing well.

it's an adjustment thing for the human, too LOL
