    Apparently, your pretty little girl thinks she's not only not a mere chicken, but royalty. Those are the cutest pics!

    I have three four-year old Brahmas that dart into the garage to swipe the cat's food out of his bowl every time I open the door. They've decided it's theirs, and they are entitled to it. In fact, the entire flock adores cat food added to their daily scratch ration.

    Growing up, our hens would steal the cat food too. The cats would get peeved about it, but they wouldn't dare swat the birds, they just walked away. It was too funny!

    I have the same problem. One of the cats finally got tired of it and so the next time I sprinkled some layer feed on the ground for the girls - the cat lapped up some crumbles! He made a face like, "oooh, this is yucky!" But then, stuck his tongue back in it and must have said, "I don't care if it's yucky. If they are going to eat MY food, by golly, I am going to eat THEIRS!"

    I sooooo wish I had video of it because it was just like a stubborn toddler moment, LOL [​IMG]
