    My pullets got quite a few presents. Let me list them.

    -In their stockings, they each got a bundle of live mealworms

    -I got them a new feeder/waterer that has designs of hens, roos, and chicks on it

    -My grandpa got them a stained-glass solarpowered yard light that is designed to look like a rooster

    In addition, they also got some corn, bacon, and a little peck of gingerbread each [​IMG] They are so spoiled

    here is a thread with all sorts of recipes

    i mixed oatmeal, cream of wheat, scratch and BOSS, then added some soaked bread, and enough water to make a dough, put it in a baking pan and cooked it at 350 for 2 hours, cut it while it was still hot, then this morning i broke it apart and gave it to them- they finished it off by noon, but it kept them all busy- i had to crumble some of it so they could see it was food

    Mine got ALL the left overs I could convince the family to let me bring... Half eaten baked potatoes, pomegrantite seeds, bread, EVERYTHING!!! Earlier they got Oatmeal with corn, plain oatmeal, plain corn, and a salad. I wish I could have gotten them something new because they're compost chickens regularly... [​IMG]
