We keep two stainless steel covered buckets in a corner on the kitchen counter.
The one on the left is for chicken scraps, the one on the right is for the compost pile.
The chicken bucket gets all kinds of good things thrown in it. Vegetable peelings, leftovers past their prime, stale bread, plate scrapings, popcorn hulls, and such. This gets taken out to the poultry yard and dumped on the ground every day.
When the chickens see someone come out the back door carrying this bucket, they know treats are on the way, and they drop everything and come running.
Watch out! Here they come, and they are on a mission. Lots of goodies are about to be available.
Everyone is eager to see what surprises the bucket holds for them today.
"I know she said this bread came out with the consistency of a brick, but I think it tastes pretty good!"
