Well I have been visiting the local garbage bin (Yes my kids shudder and hide from embarrassment......) at the local farmers market to get scraps each week and haul away a trunk load of food each week of crushed melons, bruised veg and fruits... now the harvest season is drawing to a close. So I went to webpages/emails of local lawn/landscape companies within a few mile of my home. I have LOTS of chickens to feed and cant free range as we have a creek that chickens will escape to and I cant afford any more losses! sooooooooo I have placed the following "ad" on local webpages and on free websites to see if I can get MORE food for free! SAMPLE AD What do you think? ********** Hi I live near your business in xxxx Texas and am looking for a supplier for well...... "garbage....!" We REALLY NEED grass clippings and lawn trash (fresh no paper or plastic) to feed grass /weedsclippings to our chickens. I will trade for free eggs, fresh poultry or live poultry for trash bags or fresh grass /weedsclippings. I am looking for a *** regular supplier of grass clippings*** I can pick up your clippings each week I will pay $$$ in eggs or chickens..... go home with free eggs and chickens! free food for your trash WOW! no strings. Period. *************** Well. I hope to have lots of fresh grass clippings so I won't have to free range the hens.
