    I came home this afternoon to find roughly a dozen black poops. I mean really black, but not runny. I looked around and everyone was making with the crazy just like normal. I spent nearly and hour and a half checking the internet and my chicken books, then it dawned on me-- blueberries. I fed them a handful of blueberries with their morning yoghurt (no they aren't spoiled). In short, my chickens are healthy but I'm hypertensive! [​IMG]

    You must love your chickens to share blueberries with them! Pop a few, the antioxidants will relax you...[​IMG]

    My chickens are doing the same thing but I hadn't thought of that. I have two blueberry bushes in my backyard and they have eaten so many they don't even come running when I offer them some now.

    Mine clamor for mulberries. The tree is from the neighbors, there's no one living there now, and so it's growing slightly over the area where the chickens are but not where we can easily get them but when we do, they nearly peek my fingers off.
