You take such good care of your girls!Due to circumstances beyond my control the mainland car is in the shop to get the electrical window winder thingy fixed. So I don't have a mainland car. Which means we didn't go to the mainland today. Which means I didn't pick up a fresh supply of chicken feed.
I looked @ my options: dubious quality island feed or make a mash of something myself. I went with the 2nd option because I have several girls in need of a little extra protein just now. Lavender ~ & who knows why ~ is moulting again. Lots. Big bare patches showing in her underneaths. Suyin because she is Suyin. Wrold is showing signs of going mean broody again & Medh still not 100% up to par. So I made up this gross mix of rice, scrambled egg & tuna. The cats went ballistic @ me so got to taste test the concoction. They deemed it edible so out it went to the chooks. You'd've thought it was all their Christmases come @ once.
Alpia promptly escaped the run & hopped right in a tub to scoff before she had to fight off the big girls. Medh watched which tubs I was filling & on seeing the small one promptly went & waited by the small coop door! No flies on Medh. I put out an extra tub to give everyone a fighting chance of getting some of the nice stuff. I don't hand feed when it's fishy. Besides it was warm & sticky... & it is cold outside, baby. Here we are in the middle of spring & it feels like the middle of autumn. I can see me tossing around a bit of corn a bit later just because it is so nasty out there.
