Watermelon? Ya Got Watermelon?

Our chickens have always liked watermelon rinds. They peck them right down to the bare, green shell of a skin. But the geese!

Roy just came in from throwing kitchen scraps into the poultry pen and he swears the geese were upset there were no watermelon rinds this time. They attack and scarf up the rinds as if they were the first food they'd seen in a month. Everything disappears in short order. Poor chickens don't stand a chance unless we make sure to toss the rinds into separate areas well away from each other so the geese don't get them all. The ducks just stand around saying, "What's all the fuss about?"
