This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Animal Care.

In this Badge Bit you will feed four buckets of appropriate kitchen scraps to an animal(s). This means you are not feeding that animal any scraps that include members of its own species.

Here are some related articles on it:
 - Cutting Chicken Feed Bill by 100%
 - Feeding Pigs Kitchen Scraps
 - What Do Goats Really Eat?

This video and its description is an example of feeding appropriate kitchen scraps to animals.

This video is a good example of feeding chickens appropriate kitchen scraps:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - you must feed appropriate kitchen scraps to an animal
 - you must share at least four buckets of kitchen scraps

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - post a rough description of the kitchen scraps and how they're appropriate for the animal
 - post a picture of your four buckets of kitchen scraps
 - post a picture of an animal(s) eating your four buckets of kitchen scraps
 - OR a video of the kitchen scraps being brought out and the animal(s) eating it will suffice, too
Happily living in the valley of the dried frogs with a few tiny ads.
