    That's cool! I'll have to try that. What breed of chicken is the one that is reddish with the white neck? I want one!

    I've given my girls swinging apples and laughed at how crazy they act chasing the apple and trying to out eat each other. It was so funny I should have video taped them.

    That's a great idea! I just gave my girls an apple, and I just hold it for them. They seem to like it that way. [​IMG] You can also do this with cabbage too! Have fun!

    I use a large nail or a screwdriver and just push it thru, then push the line in.
