    This morning I thought I'd give the girls a treat, so I went to the backyard and dug up a chunk about 6" deep, 10" long, and 6" wide.
    Put it in their pen and ...swarm! You'd think I dropped a ton of krugerants in the middle of the road.
    Those girls were all over it.
    Checked back on them an hour later....gone. I mean, nothing left but a tiny wad of roots.
    I think they liked it. [​IMG]

    Here's the pen in the sunroom--note dust layer [​IMG]
    And yes, it's finally green outdoors...the girls will be moving out to their coop this week! [​IMG]

    And here's a shot of all of them taking a break (it was a busy hour! [​IMG] ) (From L to R, that's Lucy's tailfeathers [​IMG], Cleo, Buffy, Lois, Goldie, Myrtle, and the best chicken mom, Millie)
