    My wife and I were sitting outside tonight just before dusk. We had the girls out free ranging. I went into the house to make a quick turkey sandwich. I come out sit in my lawn chair, next thing I know I am surrounded by chicks who think its their feeding time. Me being the big softy, I start peeling the crust off and feeding it to them. Well I was holding a piece of crust in one hand and sandwich in the other. I had one come up and grab the turkey right out of the sandwich, :mad: Next thing you know they are all fighting for the meat and I am left holding two pieces of bread with no crust and no meat.

    That's a cute story! [​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm so glad that we aren't the only people that sit in chairs in the back yard and just watch our chickens in the early evening. I sure love to do that now.

    I never realized how boring my backyard was until we got chickens and ducks!

    Ahhh, you must have some of the notorius PigChicken variety. I myself have PigChickens as well. Greedy little buggers.

    After they took the meat out of my sandwich I decided they might as well have the bread too. Well the spoiled brats turned their beaks up at it and wouldnt eat the bread.
