    I think something is working. I took their free feed tray out and fed them (scattered their grain) in the AM and again in the PM. Only we are giving them treats, but nothing past noon righ now. I want them good and hungry by dinner time. Tomorrow they are in for some corn on the cob and speghetti. [​IMG]

    Nicely done, congrats! Sounds like your neighbors are keeping up their end of the deal. Whew!

    How did your neighbors react when you asked them to stop feeding them?

    I'm glad it's working.

    Quote:Oh they totally *got it*. Like I had mentioned they are the nicest people. Who knew the chickens would get so attached to their treats [​IMG]

    They can come over with treats later on when the chickens are clear on where they live and coming in at dusk. Everyones advice was a spot on.
