    When my chickens were only a few weeks old I gave them a half-dead cicada. They ran around with it like they were playing football [​IMG]

    I hung a cabbage in the coop today since they have not been outside due to rain. It's like a chicken pinata. They love it.

    Grapes! I was holding a baggy of grapes between my knees while I was fixing something on the coop.....my EE came up behind me and grabbed the bag and ran.
    She knew what was in there. LOL! They fight over those things like crazy!

    My chckies love cherry tomatoes. They love to spear them with their beaks and run with them. Then they gobble them down and come back for more! So funny to watch.
