I had a good lunch time discovery today. Our chickens like slugs. I was dumping some compost and noticed a giant slug on the lid of the bin. I took it over to the chicken run and threw it in. They went ape over it. This gives me a nice source of protein for them out of the garden.

Today was a good day to repeat the experiment. I was out in the garden this morning checking some transplants and I noticed some slugs on the lettuce. I gathered them up in my hand and took them to the chicken coup. I dropped them in on their feeder and the chickens went nuts.
I have to remember to go to the garden with a cup to stop my hand from getting slimmed by all the slugs.
