Chicken Feed from Spent Grains

What to do with the 5-6KG of grain that has been through the mash and sparge process when brewing?

Normally I would tip them into my compost heap.

A friend has chickens and took the spent grains to feed his chooks. Apparently they loved the grains and I was rewarded with a dozen fresh eggs.

Next time I brew there is no question where my grains will go - glad they are being put to good use rather than just being thrown into the compost...
