    So yesterday it was kinda nice around here, so I decided to whip up a couple of fried egg sandwiches and enjoy the weather. While my eggs were cooking I go outside to set up my little picnic table, of course my chickens come to investigate to see if I have any treats. I go back inside finish up the sandwiches get some chips and head outside. I sit down and here come the chickens yet again, this time i shoo them away so I can eat in peace. i get two bites in and the phone starts ringing so stupid me goes running to answer it and leave the food unguarded. I come out to see the chickens huddled in a corner finishing off MY lunch [​IMG]... and for some odd reason I yell " HEY JERKS YOU DON'T SEE ME EATING YOUR MEALWORMS DO YOU!!??", as soon as it came out of my mouth I knew it was a mistake... Lucky me my neighbor's whole family were outside having a bbq and now they think I'm a crazy bug eater who talks to chickens [​IMG]

    That is just too funny!!!! A couple of weeks ago my 2 year old was walking around with a bag of ritz crackers and the chickens (buff orpingtons) thought that was the best thing in the world. They come up to her waist and she had no chance, every cracker she got out they just grabbed out of her hand. I finally had to pick her up, I guess I never thought how big a chicken must seem to a 2 year old.

    Mine will take anything if you don't watch it, popcicles, sandwiches, Corn Chips, they figure if you eat it it's fair game. DON'T PUT A PLATE IN YOUR LAP. [​IMG] Does shooing them away actually work? I'm thinking NO. [​IMG]
