I have backyard chickens that produce beautiful, delicious eggs for my family. Instead of saving food scraps (vegetable peelings, bread crusts, etc.) for the compost pile, I keep a small, clean bin near my kitchen sink to catch these cast offs. Every evening, I take the bin to the barn and feed this to an eager bunch of chickens.
Saves a bit on the cost of chicken feed and makes my chickens happy too!
