    I had a few hamburger patties left over from a family cook out and decided to give the gals a treat. I wasn't sure what they would do. I tossed a piece in the coop and chaos ensued. Everybody had to see what that was.



    They know something's up when they hear the crinkle of plastic.

    Here comes double trouble!

    Uh oh! Triple trouble!

    Everybody runs to see what I tossed on the ground

    Leggs bolts with her treat
    [​IMG]


    She gets a close look at what she has. "What the heck is this?"[​IMG]

    Stan's wattles wave as he frantically tries to see what the girls are mauling

    Leggs gives the morsel a fling just in case

    Stan arrives to assist her in killing the morsel of food. He stomps his foot, trills loudly, and picks it up

    The sharks circle as she eyes it again before eating it.

    Stan chastises a pushy hen

    Then struts off with a wave of his wattles

    [​IMG]

    Then crows to all who can hear just because he can crow

    Jennifer waves her wattles as she whips about to find a morsel
    [​IMG]


    Stan helps another gal with a morsel
    [​IMG]


    Then spins around to help another in need

    [​IMG]


    Once the food is gone, the triplets get to work on grooming themselves

    Morse Code falls asleep

    Big Sister sings the egg song

    And the egg layers get to work!

    But there is always one looking for seconds

    I like your chickens. They look cool!

    I thought feeding them meat would make them into cannibals. They won't start eating their chicks?

    Occasional meat won't hurt chickens. And since I don't plan to raise chicks around them, I won't have to worry about cannibalism.

    Thanks for looking!

    You captured some great wattle action in your photographs.

    By the way, please revisit your thread about your peacock. We are wondering what name you chose.
