    WHY LET THIS PERFECTLY HEALTHY, FEED, AND STALE HUMAN FOOD GO TO WASTE:

    I HAVE A LOT OF ANIMALS, DUCKS, RABBITS, QUAIL OF DIFFERENT TYPES AND CATS WHOSE FOOD POUND FOR POUND IS AS EXPENSIVE AS MINE.
    I collect all of the feed dust, bits and pieces the cats leave in their bowl, mix it with crushed catfish feed (used in my quail feed), scratch grains, oyster shell, Food grade diotomatious earth, eggs (shell and all), any stale cereals or chips. I put all the chips and chunky, pieces through the ninja (PULVERIZES ANYTHING), salt, molasses, and water. Mix it to a thick almost doe like batter. I bake this in a large round watering pan, ( I add scratch grains to top and press them in), bake it in the oven 300 deg. until its like a brownie. Done, but moist. Mine are about 2 inches thick. The chickens go nuts over this stuff and you aren't throwing away feed. I give it out as a treat. Refrigerate or freeze it in chunks your animals will eat in a day.
