    Hi everyone I thought you might like to see what I'm doing to keep the girls entertained during the long Canadian winter. [​IMG]

    I enjoyed seeing your beautiful chickens in their coop and chicken solarium. I may be inspired to hang some cabbage for my chickens.

    Thank you. I've done the cabbage thing a couple of times now they really enjoy it. They also like corn on the cob. Whenever it's on sale I buy a bunch and hang it up by the tops or stick it through the fence. This was there first corn cob when they were only 5 weeks old last summer.

    I loved your videos!

    I, too, give my chickens corn cobs (in the summer) and I was really leary about the cabbage. I didn't think they would really like it...but they will eat ALL of it.

    Thank you. I was sure mine would like the cabbage. Last summer whenever I took broccoli, brussels sprouts or cabbage out of the garden I gave them all of the leaves and they were crazy about it.

    Thank you and Thanks for subscribing. I love spoiling them they are pets that just happen to give me breakfast. I'm awaiting spring hoping for broody hens to see what the cross breeds with my Black Silkie Rooster will look like.
