    If you're anything like me you sometimes sit back and chuckle at yourself for the things you do to spoil your chickens. I really created monsters! I love that Chobani Greek Yogurt (especially the mango). I usually give my girls plain, cheap yogurt. One day they saw me eating and stood there looking goofy and cute so I shared my yogut with them. They loved the fruit chunks especially. Now whenever I show up with a cup of yogurt they come running and will jump at my spoon. They spoiled part is they only like to eat the fruit chunks off me spoon!!!

    My girls will never be eaten...they're spoiled!

    How do you spoil your girls?

    Hand feeding!

    I love to interact w/ them so I'll offer them seeds, fruit, meal worms out of my hand. But now if I go outside and dump anything in their treat bowl, they look into the bowl and then back up and me like, We want to be hand fed, Mom. And they just stand there. And it pains me to walk away. But sometimes I have things to do. They eat it eventually because the bowl is empty when I go back out. But if they had their way, I'd sit out there all day long and hand feed them all day long.

    They probably want pealed grapes and to be fanned too but can't figure out how to tell me that. [​IMG]
