This past week Mr. Produce Guy gave us 3 banana boxes filled with produce. Since we are still swimming in lettuce from last week, I decided to give all but a few leaves to the chickens.
This time around we salvaged lettuce, watermelon, strawberries, apples, broccoli, carrots, and blueberries. Holy cow man, there was a little bit of everything. Does anyone know what the retail value on this would be? I’m thinking somewhere in the $20 range.
Happy chickens waiting for their treats.
Typically I try and divide up the scraps so the chickens will get one fat, juicy container every 2 days or so.
I’m not sure how many chickens out there get to dine on fresh produce scraps year round, but our birds sure do love them. And you know what I love? The money I save on chicken feed.
Peace Out Girl Scouts, have a great day.
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past 8 1/2 months?
