    My Chickens have been spoiled since they hatched and even still in the shell developing [​IMG] Fussing over them as they grew up and now I go out every morning, turn on their light before sunrise, scoop the poop up before they jump down off their roost so they don't get their feet dirty. I'm at their becken call! LOL! Then, it's morning treats of cut apples and dried oats. Afternoon, start the routine over again and more treats....They are spoiled but they deserve it!

    Of course, part of the spoiling is proper care so the chickens are healthy and happy. [​IMG]

    I have my routine:

    • Clean water daily
    • Clean feeder
    • Keeping the coop/run clean and I rake through the bedding to collect excess poop and add fresh bedding
    • Good diet and vitamin supplements

    They thank me with a beautiful assortment of eggs
