Waste not, want not

The grass has gone dormant in the dryness and heat. Even the weeds are looking pathetic. This means there's much less green fodder for the geese. I've been chopping up a whole head of romaine each morning for fodder, but there always remained a nub/core of romaine that was too short & tough for the geese to grind down. Seemed a waste to put into the compost heap.

This morning's post-coffee bright idea: let's see what the chicks will do with it! I put it into their hutch, and backed away slowly. The chicks tore into the romaine with fervor, peeping and running around with pride whenever they tore off a piece.

No more compost heap for the romaine nub.
