Last year, we harvested 200kgs oranges, 1000kgs watermelons, 100kgs different grapes, 1000kgs rice, 1000kgs corns and too many pomeloes which we're unable to finish eating. We don't sell, when we are tired of eating some, we feed to our poultry.

And some of you would be jealous because my mother even feed chicken eggs to chicken when there're too many. Last year, my mother feeded at least 2000 eggs to chickens. The real eggs cost RMB 1.5 per piece here.

My mother was trying to grow tomatoes in a flowerpot. They growed well and started to bear cute little tomatoes, and then the rain started to pour down days and days, all the tomatoes fell off, leaves withered and now only two short stems remain.

"my mother even feed chicken eggs to chicken"

Would that be cannibalism?

Could they be given to poor people instead?
