I really do feed my flock! Now that the eggs ar no longer being eaten about have the gals have taken to eating mud out of one big hole. The wramer weather we had for a few days melted the area and they all have been wandering around with mudcaked beaks. In the morning they run straight over once I open the door. It is out of the question again, now that the weather has cooled off and we got another 4 inches of snow, but I'm sure they will return to it. Any particular reason they are doing this? Is there yet another thing I am not providing them? Or is this just one of the things they like to do, along with pulling frogs apart in the summer and sitting on my back whenever I bend over?
