Simple Life a.k.a. Natalie had told me how wild her chooks went for warm mash, just their own feed mixed with hot water - of course I doctored it up with some birdseed and scratch - I think she does, too. They went wild for it! It's frigid out there, 17 now but earlier it was below 10, and I felt sorry for them (yea, I know, they're birds, but they're giving me such lovely eggs even in this winter weather) so I made some up and brought it out - they loved it! I know some of you hard core chicken raisers think some of us are nuts to spoil them, but I don't have 300, I only have 15, and they give me a lot of pleasure and satisfaction. It warms my heart to see them dive in like that!
