Have chickens? Make friends with a homebrewer.

One of me coworkers is a home brewer.  The other day he mentioned that he was getting ready to make a batch.  So I asked him what he did with the spent grain and could I have it.  He said I could as long as I provided him with a container.  I gave him a 5-gallon bucket. 

He filled my 5-gallon bucket and a third of a 6-gallon bucket as well.
I dumped out what was in the 6-gallon bucket and the chickens went nuts.
It was pretty much all gone the next morning.
The grain in the 5-gallon bucket lasted a little longer. 

I'm hoping that I can get more spent grain in the future.  It's a free way to supplement their feed.
