yeah!!!!!! one of the people i work for was cleaning out her fridge and pantry. there were lots of grains and old veggies and such. she said, here will your animals eat these? yeah. i turned down the moldy bread, ick, but the rest i know they will love. even peanuts in the shell and such. yeah. when i get home from work tomorrow, they'll have a good new years treat. i got two whole paper bags plus a little extra! oh, those chickies will be happy. i can freeze the rest for later. yeah! i have two other friends who save odd scraps for the animals plus neighbors will, too. i think people like feeling like their food isn't going to waste. do other people spontaneously give food to your chickens or have you asked for stuff before?
