    Quote:I have a hen that I named Miss Purdy Poopscratcher - because every morning I open the door to the coop and she makes a beeline for the cow pasture. The ducks do it, too [​IMG]

    Then again, turnabout is fair play.
    Our neighbor cleaned out their commercial chicken houses today. As is customary around here they use trucks to haul the dirty chicken litter to pastures for fertilizer.
    One of the trucks full of caked, nasty chicken litter - I'm talking 4" thick hardened layers that look like asphalt. [​IMG] came through our property today on the way to a meadow . The whole herd of cows were following behind that truck, running to keep up. Cows love that stuff! [​IMG]
