I think I'm going to have to teach my chickens to read and bring them into the house to read BYC posts. I read on here that chickens LOVED popcorn, so I popped some corn, let it cool and rushed to the run with it. Got the stink-eye, like "are you trying to poison us?" Read on here that chickens LOVE to dust-bathe in sand, so I bought a 50# bag of play sand, brought it home and fixed a sand bath. Stink-eye again... all they did was poop in it. Today I had an ash bucket to empty from the wood stove and read that they love to dust-bathe in wood ashes. Made them a nice dust/ash bath in the run. Guess what? Stink-eye again. I hate to tell them this, but I'm getting ready to read the freezer camp posts. Oh and they're protesting the cold weather by not laying since they can't go out and free-range. Dumb clucks!!!
