    I use a 5-gal. bucket to catch mash hens would otherwise throw away. I place it under the feeder.
    Any other ideas?

    This is what I have tried for dealing with the waste in my scratch (I posted this just a few minutes ago "3 grain Chicken Scratch Corn Bread" and I haven't feed it too them yet I will in the morning. Its from the fine almost dust (meal) when I sift the scratch to keep it from their pans, . Im thinking I could add the mash instead of the flour or both before baking. I just dont know if it would be as tasty (I keep forgetting I made the corn bread for them!) The recipe is in my post Its a corn bread recipe.
    Its absolutly delicious! Hope they like it Im having another slice with my venison pumpkin curry!
