    Today the weather is terrible. I am letting my 3 hens sit on the back of the couch and watch some TV until outside conditions improve. (I have the day off and can watch them) They are well behaved and house trained.

    Seriously, what is a good movie/TV show for them to watch? Do have Netflix and Hulu online and so many DVDs I cannot list. Also have ondemand. I do want them to watch something G or PG. They are less than one year so it needs to be family friendly [​IMG]

    Something about bugs, I'd think! Plenty of animated features in that genre. Or if you want something a little more documentary/artistic, rent Microcosmos. My cats like that one. (True fact.)

    LOL,

    That is way tooo funny.I cant wait for D.H to call so I can tell him there are other BYCrs' with girl'.s more spoiled than mine...lol...DH thought O was joking when I told him to heat up the corn on the cob as my girls dont like it cold.He laughed and rolled his eyes.I was serious and he did heat it up proclaiming," these girls eat better than me" aaah,poor DH.. Sorry no advice for the movies.Can you please post a pic of them? Perhaps they would enjoy some popcorn,how cute..Dont think my dogs and cats would like the chicks that close,actually they would love it but I dont think it would be safe for my girls. Have fun w/the movies.

    I like to set up an outdoor movie theatre for my ducks. The particularly enjoy Harry Potter movies. For special treats I fill up their food bowls with popcorn and the water bowls with various flavors of koolaide. I used to show them some romantic movies, but some of the ducks began copulating, thus ruining the show for the rest of us.
