    I told him you gotta see this. Cleaning up after our 3 year grand daughter left, I found some raisins she didn't eat, so I took them to our 2 hens Lola and Stella. I offered the raisins to them and my sweet hens turned into piranhas. They made excited chuckling noises and tore those raisins UP! I had to go get my husband to let him see the personality disorder himself. Another handful of raisins and tons of laughter for us. DH just shakes his head at me.

    LOL. Mine go nuts over boiled white rice. One of my Red Stars even flew up into the pan I was holding and knocked it out of my hand spilling the rice all over the ground, a free for all ensued.
