    Our local grocery store, Albertsons, has 4 oz frozen salmon fillets for $1 each! They are in the freezer section, little pouches of frozen fish. They are designed to be a single serving of fish. I used 2 forks and flaked up the fish, then cut up the skin, so everyone could get some. I think I might stock up on these. They are a great winter protein. treat! They have other varieties, too, like pollock, tilapia, scallops.

    Quote:Thanks for the warning. I gave a 4 oz peice to 12 chooks, so they averaged 1/3 oz per bird. I think I might give them this 2-3 times a week when the ground is covered in snow. Does that sound like a lot?
