    I'm in the process of cleaning my pantry and transferring everything to glass containers after a nasty moth infestation. It's taken me over a week.

    Over the past eight days, the hens have gotten:
    quinoa
    brown and white rice
    cornmeal (chicken polenta!)
    several kinds of beans
    bulgar
    pasta
    oatmeal
    crackers
    split peas
    lentils

    And some of those things had lovely moth larvae in them, so you know the girls were happy!

    I have my last batch cooking on the stove as we speak. I'll be glad when this ordeal is over.
