    Well this has been a tradition on Thanksgiving to shoot sceet. I fed the chickens and collected eggs, it was so funny, when a shot went off ALL the chickens would jump like the ground lifted them up in a puff. They kept on eatting and being chickens I thought the eggs would be less today but I got 24 today out of 30.
    Of course there weren't enough sceet shot for breakfast. Should I tell them to quit trying to shoot enough to eat! [​IMG]

    Well once again my DS's and DH along with my DD and SNL went out to the field to shoot Thanksgiving Day sceet. I was kind of worried about the Chickens as this is their first Thanksgiving with all the shot gun blasts going off. It was really kind of funny, all the chickens scratching up the fresh greens I threw them as a treat and when someone would shoot it was like the ground poofed them up about a 1/2 inch in the air.....TTTOOOOFunny. They layed just fine that day and the day after and today so they didn't get too upset. On the down side they still didn't bring home any sceet to eat! Why do they even go to shoot at them if you don't get any to eat??? [​IMG]

    I've never relished the taste of clay pigeons.

    The good news (hopefully) is that when they do shoot at real game, they won't miss and they'll be able to bring home some tasty vittles.

    My chickens are very tolerant of gunfire. They like to watch me shoot pistols. Knocked down a goos in the yard the other day and they all rushed over to attack the intruder. Crazy animals.
