    :rolleyes:Nice life these chickens have...not an egg in gratitude! Mac and cheese from the Blue Box as a snack yesterday (eaten like worms...very cool to watch) -, nice clean coop and the best water and food one can get in the area. Should I show them pictures? Educational films? Threaten them? Spank them? Eat them? (never).

    I brought mine scraps in a KFC bucket. Two days later: Eggs. I think they got the message.

    [​IMG] My last hen would give me an egg everytime I gave her a fresh night-crawler. My hubby's buddy has plenty of extra's - he buys them by the boxful, then never goes fishing! After a few days of seeing the box in his fridge, he'll send the worms up for our chicken.

    1 in 3 people are crazy

    look to the person on your left ---
    then look to the person on your right ---
    if they seem normal ---
    then you're the crazy one
