    OMG! gave the girls a cut up strawberry today! I have never laughed so hard in my life!
    At first they wouldn't even try them, then my ever inquisitive Barnevelder, decided she would try some. What a hoot! Once she had a piece in her beak, they all wanted what she had. Chasing each other around, running in circles! Stealing pieces, going back to get another piece, what fun! [​IMG]

    Great way to start my evening!!

    I am so happy that I decided to do this! 3 weeks old and growing like weeds, I tell ya, WEEDS!

    That's so funny! Similar experience the other day. We usually get a few dozen crickets from Petco and give them to our hens on Saturday (treat day) but since its been very cold we opted for feeder goldfish instead.

    We placed the fish in a shallow pan with about an inch of water. Chickens loved them very much, stole them from each other, grabbed them and ran away, ate them, came back and grabbed another.

    Will totally do this again and take some video footage to share.
