    gah! I saw one of my girls running around with something just now and I thought that it was a yard mushroom... when I went out to get it it turned out to be styrofoam! No idea how that got in our yard but she did eat a bit of it and another 2 got a bit of a nibble... stupid creatures! Is there anything I should do about this?

    Yep, styrofoam is like chicken popcorn - they love it, especially when they are watching movies in the coop with a pirated signal from your satellite TV... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It will pass.
    I think they just like to get a rise from us. They like the attention and fuss we make over them when they do something stupid.
    Mine ate a a rubber band. She has more spring in her step.
    I made sure she had oyster shell to help grind it up.
    But she got me all worked up too. Ridiculous bird.

    No, Kids have the opposite problem. They won't eat anything...until they become teenagers.

    When I first started hatching a few years ago I had a hova-bator. The chicks in the brooder soon grew and not thinking I left the incubator in the new coop where I turned the started birds into. The next morning all I had left was the heating element and some plastic parts.All chickens were fine but the hova-bator was no more.
