    It seems that my chooks can find the smallest piece of styrofoam anywhere! They fight over it, then swollow it as fast as they can. Fortunatly I have managed to get all but a few tiny pieces. But what attracks them?

    I just chased my 4 girls around trying to get the few pieces they found the porch, wow they can be fast LOL.

    dont know either. Everytime i take the ducks out they run around the yard searching for plastic wrappers and other assorted yumyums. The only time they consider dandelion is when i hold it in bite size pieces right in front of their bill. [​IMG]
