    bread is always a favorite treat [​IMG] mine love yogurt and cream cheese too but it's very messy!
    edit: thanks [​IMG] raven was amazing. i wish he hadn't died as he did. we think he had a couple of strokes. after the first one he acted like a chick and hardly made any noise even tho he had been very regal and always loyal to his flock, keeping as many as 7 other roosters in line at one point! luckily i hav many of his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and even a great great grandchild who's egg i set the day his great great grandmother died, and who hatched when raven had his first stroke, and was four weeks when raven passed away. in the same hatch, his last grandchick was born. some day i'll breed them and carry on his line for as long as i can.
