How many feed bags do you have laying around? At any given time I probably have about a dozen. I get feed from 2 different places so I have 3 different types of bags. The chickens eat at least 3 bags of feed a week so I always have a fresh supply, which brings me to the question: what do I do with them all?

The burlap ones can be reused in a ton of ways! I’ve made cute feed sack pillows for the patio out of them. They are also good for covering outdoor furniture cushions that are getting old. Plus I can always find someone who will take them off my hands for crafts.The plastic feed bags though, those are a little harder to use up.
