Today I bought some chicken at a local supermarket and noticed a sticker on the package which claimed that these birds "had not been fed animal by-products"; this, by implication, meant the other poultry for sale had been (fed animal by-products). Being very naiive, I had assumed that the British sheep hoof -and -mouth disaster and the current BSE business had put an end to this practice. So, I asked the meat manager what the score was. He said that, aside from these specialy marked packages, all other poultry had been fed on "anything and everything" - like , live and learn, eh?

What happens is the farm animal feed manufacturers collect free animal corpses from farms and grind them into dust and then mix it into their animal feeds prior to being formed into pellets or granules. They even put a high proportion of chicken manure into cattle feed! It took the serious health issues you mention to bring about a ban in the UK. Much of the rest of the world still do this.
