    One of the drawers in my refrig is designated just for chicken treats. Currently it holds a brick of cheese(bought on sale), spinach, yogurt, grapes and crushed egg shell. Then theres the oatmeal in the pantry too.
    Any one else have a "hands off-- that's for the girls" section? [​IMG]

    I do not currently have one, . . . but it sounds like a good idea to me! [​IMG]
  3. not for the chickens but when my ex and I had our macaw I set aside a drawer for her [​IMG] so if your chickens are your pets, well . . . I totally understand them having their own fridge space [​IMG]

    Unfortunatly when we split I let him keep the macaw. But I was being nice and didn't want to take away his only friend at that point. Altho I miss her terribly.

    The chickens do however have some pantryspace in the form of flaxseed, oats, hempseeds, sunflower seeds and millet for treats, and I have planted their own lettuce in the garden.

    I do now! last weekend my sister saw me fixing some yogurt with some Mueslie (can't spell it, ) and raisins and had herself a little taste when my back was turned (I am 49, sister is older) she said that was good could she have some, I told her to ask the girls! She thought it was really funny, but when I went to the fridge there was a sign, Girls Stuff. [​IMG]

    OH... this is a good idea! I have been known to make trips to the store just to buy treats intended for the chicks... [​IMG]

    Actually, the entire fridge is fair game. DH doesn't eat anything before asking if it's ok. Between the chickens, the dogs, and the goats, I am considering a fridge in the barn for them! DH once ate homemade dog biscuits thinking they were oatmeal cookies. [​IMG] Now - he asks first!
