Anyone else "discover" that chickens and turkeys have little idea what is good for them?
I got a package today that came with the typical styrofoam sheet for packing. I left some of it near the kitchen and the rest blew out the window with a gust of wind.
Unknown to me the turkeys were on it almost instantly and tearing it apart like we humans would tear into a free jumbo bag of tater chips. Luckily I caught them after a few minutes and took the remaining foamboard out of the balcony.
The two dumb dumbs chased the little white kernels around the rest of the day and oh if they caught one the other would chase the lucky one around hoping to see it dropped and gobble it down for themself. I had to rip the last chunk out of the hens mouth as I had seen them buzzing around chasing each other for about 5 minutes.
Gonna be some interesting poops tomorrow.
The chickens were slightly smarter but they were still trying to eat up the foam next to the kitchen after they discovered they could peck it into bite sized pieces.
I just can’t believe how happy they were to eat styrofoam.
Still it makes you think how we humans look to any other species gobbling up mounds of fast and or processed foods to any onlookers up there.
Sorry, no pics, didnt think of grabbing the camera.
