    I agree, who would want good food on the ground? I use peat moss in my runs and it gets all over the food. I put leftovers in a big bowl and at least they start out clean...
    Nice looking chickens, quite a variety!

    I use a big bowl. I don't like the scraps getting dirty.

    That is amazing. My 8 year old son just came in the room and said really loud..."WHOA look at the comb on that chicken! It must be a rooster!" We have a leghorn hen and her comb flops over. Yours stands straight up. Is it OK to flop over? I read somewhere it should be straight up but I have also heard leghorns can be floppy.

    nope,,, the hens will almost always flop,,, only the roo's have em standing up like that ( most times) ,, his son that i have is on his way to getting a "good 1" too [​IMG]
