    wear flip flops into the chicken coop when you have treats in your hand! [​IMG] I learned my lesson today. I was out weeding my garden and thought I would bring my chickens a few grubs and worms that I had found, not thinking I walked into the coop and started feeding the treats to my chickens. Then my very bold chicken Tetra decided my toes looked like a big bug and chomp! Right down on the toe, you would of thought after one bite she would have realized that it wasn't a treat. I guess she is just special [​IMG]

    I had a friend over and we were both wearing sandals and throwing bread. Then it became a game of throwing bread at each others feet. Very funny.

    Quote:or any other bright colors! :lol My nails are painted in 3 different colors (colors chosen by my 2 yr old daughter--Bright Pink, Lime Green, and Midnight Blue... [​IMG] ) and the chickens attacked my toes! Luckily I am used to it though.

    And hold the treat container at head level, NOT waist level, if you don't want it spilled in front of your feet all at once. Some chickens can fly straight up just fine, thank you.
