    Treats on a cool day, yesterday: mealworms, fresh kale, scratch, and some warm corn off the cobb prior to roosting time. -of note, our little OEGB pullet snagged a small frog for a treat. [​IMG]

    I've been canning pumpkin and squash, so I've been giving them bowls of left overs and seeds. They wipe it out in a hurry. I also had some old steel cut oatmeal that I didn't use, and put it on top of their feed. GONE ... in 60 Seconds!

    I'm about done with my parsley plant for the year, so think I'll set the pot in their run.

    Glad I only had a few sunflowers survive this summer in the garden. I wanted a whole row so I could give them to my girls as a treat. I gave them a large sunflower head this morning.....hum.....I thought they would be so excited. Apparently it does not interest them...so I am back to giving them left over tomatoes and spaghetti squash. I guess I will bring the sunflower head back to the house for my goldfinch and other birds at the feeder....lol

    Yogurt! As Lacey demonstrates here.

    She's spotted the dish in my hand!


    It didn't take her long to dive right in, beak first.


    The look of a happy chicken!


    Going back for seconds.

    Peeper Pudding

    unflavored gelatin
    plain yogurt
    mashed watermelon with juice
    rolled oats, crushed

    I mixed it all together and just put it in their brooder in a raised bowl so they wouldn't step all over in it and get yucky. They [​IMG] it.
