    Mine get so much every day that today all they will get is what we scrape off the plates after lunch. That will consist of ham, venison, salad, corn, peas, broccoli/rice casserole, mac n cheese, deviled eggs, sweet potato pie and pecan pie. They have already had one sweet potato pie because I didn't discover until after I baked it that the nuts had bugs in them. So we dumped that one and made 3 more.

    There are only 4 of us eating so we will have plenty to feed some of the caged birds. The free rangers have been hanging out in teh back yard waiting for morsels to be flung out the back door. [​IMG]

    Mine will be getting the turkey carcass for sure. They will keep them busy for a bit.

    Mine have already been gorging on the trimmings from processing a deer. This morning they got apple peels, bread dough bowl scrapings, crumbs from last night's pizza and celery tops. By afternoon there will be more...

    Mine have just received baked sweet potato, baked acorn squash, some stuffing, boss, mealworms and half of a small sugar pumpkin. [​IMG] I think they will have a Happy Thanksgiving.
