    Has anyone else gotten such a laugh watching thier chickens eat spaghetti? They don't even go for other kinds of pasta so much, but the longer noodle must be similar to a worm in a way that gets them excited. They grab-take steps backward-and eat thier way up. Or shake thier heads with it like crazy. It's so so funny.

    Yep! My DD usually eats pasta leftovers for breakfast, but she was gone so the chickies got the spaghetti, it was soooo funny. Mine really like mac and cheese too, they have a heck of a time getting the cheese sauce off of their beaks though. Wiping their beaks on the ground doesn't work very well this time of year since everything is mud.

    Yeah! It is fun, the kids love taking the leftovers out to them and watching the chickens dangle the stands and swallow them like earthworms without the yuck factor. But then there are no leftovers for my lunch. Oh well, cheap fun.
