Last weekend we went out for tea - something that doesn't happen very often. But we were too knackered after a day of shovelling 1 ton of dolomite sand, manoeuvring a 5000l rain water tank into position, etc. to do any cooking in the evening.
Anyway, we were enjoying our meal immensely, and all that was left on the plates was a big pile of bones (pork ribs, lamb shanks - a real meat feast!). So, we were saying how much our chooks would enjoy these bones (there was still a smidgen of meat left on them), when the waitress asked how things were, etc. When we told her how lovely the meal was and that we were wondering whether we could have the bones for our chooks, she didn't bat an eyelid and brought out some alu foil to wrap them up. Wow! We did feel bad about the alu foil, and were wondering whether to bring a container for chook scraps with us next time we went out for tea...but that might be another story.
So, next morning the chooks had an absolute feast! They weren't too keen on the lamb shanks, but enjoyed the pork ribs.
Here they are:
