Easy ~ Is it Chicken Feed or Chicken Feet or Chicken Feat?

.
Chicken Feed
Chicken Feet
Chicken Feat

I know that one of them is suppose to mean 'Easy'. But I'm don't know which is the correct one. I'm also curious as to it's origins. Would there be anyone out there who can help? Is it 'Chicken Feed' or 'Chicken Feet' or 'Chicken Feat'?

I feel that all of them can be used. Here are my logical, illogical logic.

'Chicken Feed' ~ 'as easy' or 'as simple' as 'chicken feed', where there's no fuss in the stuff we feed chickens.

'Chicken Feet' ~ 'as easy' or 'as simple' or 'as bare' as the 'chicken's feet', so as to show that it's not complicated and therefore 'easy' to do.

'Chicken Feat' ~ if the chicken can do it, so can we --- therefore, it should be 'easy' to do.

chicken feed
Fig. a small amount of anything, especially of money. (See also for chicken feed. Compare this with for peanuts.) Of course I can afford $800. That's just chicken feed. It may be chicken feed to you, but that's a month's rent to me.

Hmm... I may have been using it wrongly. I was about 7 or 8 and in primary school and everyone I know in school use it to mean 'easy'. We all may have been using it wrongly if it were to mean 'a small amount of anything, especially of money' as oppose to just 'easy'.
