    For a couple weeks now I have been treating the chicks to wild strawberries. I've kept the actual location of the strawberry patch a secret from the chicks, so they wouldn't overindulge. As far as they knew, strawberries just magically appear in mama's hands.
    I made the mistake of sharing the location of the patch with my roo, Zeus yesterday, because...well he's spoiled and my favorite. I made him quit after he gobbled up five berries. Where do you think is the first place he led the hens today? [​IMG] Lesson learned: Roos can't keep a secret. [​IMG]

    The other day I left the lid off the can of feed while I was filling the feeder. A Boy Named Sue hops up on the feed and starts that, "Man, have I found the mother load, girls, come and get it!" clucking thing they do....almost hated to shoo him out of the feed bin, he seemed so excited! Hope he wasn't watching how the lid comes off...... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] One time I showed a silkie roo where his girl was (broody in a flowerpot) every night after he tried to sleep in that pot. [​IMG]
