    Hey, this is my first year with my 3 RIR and 6 B. Australorp. I feed them lots of scraps from the garden, and I was wondering....do all chickens clean up their scraps? Any corn cobs, rinds, etc after they eat what they want, they pile all that up in the corner of the pen. I like it, makes it easy to clean up!

    Sounds more like the work of rodents.

    Pack rats, to be specific. Chickens are not known to engage in housekeeping.
