The brilliance of #chickens. Amongst other skills, they eat every grain of leftover rice, every apple peel, every bit of spoiled cheese -- and volia -- they it all turn into eggs (and meat).

Plus they eat every bug they spy. The more of them around, the better.

During the early 80's I was owned by over fifty chickens. Koo Koo Kuh Choo. We provided eggs to a local (and ongoing) food cooperative. At the time the idea of butchering was beyond my scope but I've always known why these birds have been considered so valuable.
Low maintenance, low overhead, quick to multiply and plenty of product. Central to a small farm economy. What's not to love?
