    How do you 'serve' your table scraps? Pics would be great. I'm tired of my kids leaving my good kitchen items in the run after they serve them food. We usually just toss them in on the dirt but that doesn't seem like the best thing to do. Thanks in advance!

    We just toss them in the run and they go for it. Now in then we use old plastic containers.

    With a nice cabernet to balance the fruity tones of food going bad.

    Toss it in the run. If a pan or bowl that I don't want to scrap clean leave it in run few hours. That's long enough for the birds to peck it clean but not so long they poop all over it.

    We have a smallish tray that was left over from our holiday cookie giving. We get them at the dollar store (or somewhere cheap) every year an then donate/find other uses for any left over ones.

    I use a metal loaf pan that I picked up at the thrift store. It's a good size for my small flock of 5. They have all kinds of kitchen items at most thrifts, and most are very reasonably priced.
