    Wow. Pelleted feed and kitchen scraps. Who knew I was such a trendsetter? I've been doing that for 20 years! And I double dog dare them to say their kitchen scraps are "better' than what I feed my family [​IMG]

    I know. The article was a little ridiculous....and enough to make me want to start growing birds not just for laying but for eating. I am sure many of our birds are being raised in even better conditions, only without the marketing gimmick of "birds raised on the scraps from 4 star restaurant X.....plus the generic feed we give all the other birds."
