    So I discovered a hot new treat for my chicken & duck babies today, and they LOVE it! My mom picked up a couple giant ripe PAPAYAS from the store today and gave me one. I brought it home & cut up one half of it, had some myself, tried unsuccessfully to get hubby & the kids to have some, then took the whole other half outside to the flock. They jumped on that thing like flies on dookie! Seriously, it's down to nothing but skin and in mere minutes!

    Added bonus: Save the Papaya seeds, you can grow them in your back yard in southern states during the warm months. See http://www.tropicalpermaculture.com/growing-papaya.html for a how-to.
