Adding Fat To You Small Animal Feed?
Saw a post on this practice of adding dried oats to the excess fat left over from cooking and then adding the fat soaked oats to your small animal feed (in this case to chickens).
Comments in the post had concerns about excess salt and how it might impact the liver of your chickens long term, but as one person mentioned her chickens all had a "in-the-pot retirement plan" she wasn't that worried.
Looking at the subject via Google, I see that making "fat balls" for wild birds is a practice. That is what suet is after all, seeds mixed with a fatty thickener.

I could see the usefulness of doing this in the Winter, as the need for fat to stay warm is increased.
I don't know enough about raising chickens or other small animals to know if this is a good thing or bad.
