    ... warming cold chicken feets. [​IMG]

    I thought that the kids would love it, but no. I put it in their treat bowl in the brooder. I stood back. I waited for the joy and rapture that this new taste treat would provide.

    They kicked shavings in it, then hopped in and warmed their feet.

    They did, however, love the baked sweet potato last night.

    I broke out the frozen sweet corn tonight.
    Hilarity ensued. I saw my first game EVER of chicken keep-away. I laughed so hard my sides hurt. The teeny weenie little Frizzgig is a keep away CHAMP! She's fast and tiny! She zipped right under the standard chicks and hid in the crack behind the waterer to eat her kernel.
    Ya'll shoulda told me how much fun this is. [​IMG]
