    This is my first Christmas with my hens [​IMG]
    Ill be bringing Bug and Winter to See Santa on Friday (I blame all of you...) and I have a cute little wreath hung up on there door!
    Then on Christmas I plan on cooking a hen's breakfast for them:
    Which is:
    Scrambled eggs with grass roots, crickets, meal worms, and apple bits in it. Followed by warm water with soaked Mint leaves so they can wash everything down [​IMG] <--They love soggy Mint)
    Then ill be bringing them out there gift [​IMG]
    A home made suit cake!!!
    (I work from home, so yes...I have no life...)
    And of coarse pictures will follow [​IMG] and for those of you who remember my hens thanksgiving, I assure you this will be just as amusing!

    So! Is anyone else just as nuts as me? Or worse?
    And please if there are pictures please share them! [​IMG]

    Yay!

    i would make them up a hot oatmeal mash, and add festive color foods they like. (peas, tomatoes, ect) then, i would dig a hole in the snow for them to scratch in, as a present. (i know how chickens can get bored with regular old food in the winter) and spend some extra quality time with them. (if it isn't TOO cold in their coop)

    (i work from home yes..i have no life)

    My mom home schools us kids and does daycare!​
