    While my big chickens share and don't really fight over the bread...
    My 10 week olds fight like cats and dogs!!!
    I tried getting some pics, but they were running every where!!! One would grap a peice and 3 or 4 would chase them trying to get it!!! They all loved the bread... exept for my young delaware rooster who was terrafied!!! [​IMG]

    Its chicken fun!!! Playtime that includes food- can't beat that. I have access to lots of free day old bread so my chickens get it every day. They love it and play with it even though there is plenty and they always get it.

    But why is my young rooster afraid of it??? He's so stand offish and mean most of the time, but when I throw the bread in the lot... he runs to the opposite side of the run!!!
