Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Noun Phrase 68. The noun phrase
today is chicken feed. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. Chicken feed
is used to refer to a very small or insignificant amount of money. Okay. So
let's continue. This noun phrase derives from ... So it derives from you know, it means it comes
from. That's where they got it from originally. From the idea that chickens
can be fed very cheaply on corn or wheat grain. So it's often thought of as a
very cheap amount of money. So that's how that's why they started saying something
is chicken feed to refer to a very small amount of something. All right. Let's, let's
give several examples here. Example number one. I wouldn't mind doing that
job, but the pay is chicken feed. Yeah. The pay is too little. It's too much not enough.
So you know, I might not mind doing that job but you know , they they just don't
pay enough. It's not worth my time. All right number two here. They say it's
not worth selling I would only get chicken feed for it. So maybe something
we're thinking about selling but maybe it's it's not even worth the time of the
energy to do it because nobody would be willing to give you that much money for
it. You'd only get chicken feed for it. Okay good . I'm number three here. There is
no use in selling it for scrap metal. Maybe it's some machine or something
that's no longer working. They just pay chicken feed these days. And sometimes it
depends on the price of certain metals. Sometimes they go up and sometimes
they'll go down. Uou know, an industry is a hot and moving and a lot of metal as
being used sometimes price is higher. Sometimes it might be worth selling
something for scrap metal. And then other times it will go down and really it's
sometimes not even worth the trouble of putting it into a truck and bringing it
you know to a recycling plant to sell it for scrap metal Well anyway, I hope you
got it I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye bye.
