    If you give a flock of chickens a head of Purple Cabbage to play teatherball with in the evening, you wake up the next morning and the coop and yard are covered in Blue Poo. Just a Fun Fact [​IMG]

    [​IMG] We used to live pretty close to a mid-size family run pig farm. You should of seen the pig fields after the beets were harvested and the excess fed to the pigs. It looked like an incredibly brutal battlefield post battle. Yuck!

    Well, i had tried it before, but this was the first time i thought of telling other people. The first time i went down to my coop last year and saw that, i was worried for a minute they were sick, but then i realized it was the cabbage lol

    Bahaha, I gave mine a red pepper, and the next day all their poop was like... clay colored, and it had a sort of sweet smell to it. It sounds pleasant, but trust me, it was their grossest poops yet.
