As I write, this is cooking on the stove. Fish (perch) heads, fish spines, fish eggs, duck eggs, and corn meal. Looks appetizing -- no? The chickens will go crazy for it.
When my husband goes fishing, I scrounge the left overs. This is a small pot, and I will end up feeding the whole thing to my 10 hens and 1 rooster today. When they eat this, they don't touch their regular feed. Can we say saving on the feed bill? I will throw them some scratch feed to balance out all this protein.
I have an over abundance of duck eggs this winter. (Such a warm winter? I don't know why.) I can't bake that much. They may as well become a protein source for the chickens.
I have found that if I add a little corn meal to the pot, the whole house doesn't end up smelling like fish -- I have no idea why, ....it just works.
