It seems that every food can benefit from predigestion by microbes and such.
I wonder that more homestead pork producers don't keep chickens or guinea fowl right along side of the pigs.
Furrowing pigs would delight the chickens.

I do imagine some birds would be eaten, but not too many.
Oyster mushrooms and red wrigglers could also be good links in the chain.
