    I've been very busy around here lately.. keeping the grass mowed & garden stuff.The chickens & ducks have been enjoying the grapes back in the garden.

    Another favorite,figs. [​IMG] We have 4 trees all together & the chickens usually get sick of eating them after awhile.One thing I love to see, is a young chicken tasting one for the first time,lol. A first they are scared & unsure... but just one bite & they are hooked. [​IMG] I can't walk by the figs without being mugged by the chickens

    About a week ago,I let one of my older bantam hens hatch a couple of Polish chics.They are living the high life, every hen that hatches babies gets the royal treatment.They get crickets & mealworms delivered each day & they have had some figs & grapes,too. I let them spend a couple of days penned up & they get to free range after that.They just hang out by the coop & scratch around the artichokes.

    My little Dovey is hatching out more babies right now. I'll post some pics,gosh knows what they will look like.
    Have a good evening,Miriam [​IMG]

    Oh My, those photos were so sweet! I love checking out your posts (photos) I'm so glad I looked before I hit the sack!

    you have beautiful hens, and their diet sounds so good and healthy~ And, why not? Spoiled doesn't mean rotten, right? [​IMG]

    Well,I've got three more babies this morning.Looks like two are Polish & one mixed breed.
    I'll post some pics soon.
    Thanks,Lunachick It's so pitiful around our place with the heat & now drought.
    English Chick, our garden has more of the natural look,lol. Some places I just let the grass grow, the chickens & ducks enjoy the grass seed. [​IMG]
