    That is funnier to watch than a spaghetti dinner. I just bought a bunch of grapes cuz they were on sale, and threw half them out to the chickens... Only I did it on the drive way, thinking it might be just as funny as the kids stale cheese balls rolling away from them once they get the first peck, and they chase them down... OH MAN! GRAPES! It was like I gave them the ULTIMATE TREAT! So funny to watch. I wish I could post video... And no I don't do youtube... Don't even know how, so you'll have to take my word for it, or try it yourself!

    I have gallons of frozen blueberries because I raise them and store more than I could ever eat or give away. During the hot summer days I would take a pint or two out to the chickens. After they started to thaw out a little the birds would go crazy for them. They would just about maul me to obtain them. Now I can't wait to try the grape soccer game. Let's see the rules should go something like this I think,
    draw a line in the sand and hold the grape about 3 ft in the air, drop it and see which team get the ball / grape and just how far they go before being tackled by the opposite team member.

    I tried grape football today, the first one I dropped they didn't know what to do. But after a few peaked at it they soon learned. The second grape I dropped was run 30 feet for a touch down. I can't wait for tommorow to see if they have the rules to this game down pat yet.
