What can you do with too many papayas? Chicken feed!

What can you do with too many papayas?  Chicken feed!

We got some seeds from a Panamanian papaya, and it grows these huge fruits that are really too big to eat even if you try all week.  Since we have an abundance of papayas right now, we can't possibly keep up, so guess what... the lucky chickens are eating very well these days.

The summer time weather has been great and the papayas are cranking here in Haiku Maui.  We give lots away too, but I know the chickens really love them, so why not make their day?

You too could be raising chickens and papayas on the north shore of Maui.  

Find a home here in Haiku where the living is easy.  Or buy some land in Haiku Maui and build your own farm.  Let me be your guide... it's easier than you think.

Georgie, I hope you fared okay with the double-header hurricane. I don't think I've ever seen a papaya that large. Those chickens are having a fantastic summer, aren't they?

WOW Georgie! Those really are huge papayas! I would imagine with your climate you'd have more fruit than you could eat. Glad the chickens got a treat!

Georgie, I loved this! I hate seeing food wasted and what the heck, why NOT give those little critters a gourmet dessert? It's really good for their digestion, too !

Hi Georgie,

This is a good choice to give it to your chickens instead of just throwing them away or letting them rot on the tree.
