    My hens have this strange addiction to styrafoam... We live on almost 2 1/2 acreas of land and they free range alot of the time (Depending on the weather of course. [​IMG] ) Anyways, I have cleaned most of the free ranging spots but they have since found new spots they can get to and I havent been able to get it all cleaned up. Of course there is styrafoam over in the new spot thats how they found it lol. I have taken the styrafoam away from them and even had to chase them down to get it away from them lol. Darn chickens [​IMG]
    I call it their drug of choice [​IMG] Because they seem to really love it alot...

    Anyways, I was just wondering what are your ladies and gents "drug" of choice?

    Mine love Grapes and Styrafoam. ROFL

    Quote:OMG I actually removed a big styrofoam piece from my house (under a bay window, what was left of it) because the birds would NOT stop eating it! I had to chase them down to give it up! Now I think I'd better re-insulate that bay window, but I don't know with what, and maybe properly finish it so the birds can't get it. [​IMG]

    Better watch out if you bring grapes out... They also love sunflower seed. If one starts jumping up at a sunflower head, then all the girls come running to get the seeds that drop off.

    my 5 girls once quickly snatched a fresh water pearl bracelet off of my wrist and cleaned them up in seconds.
    The next day they gave me "pearly POOPS"[​IMG]
    My girls love their special treat mix- oatmeal, eggshell & corn scratch mixed in a coffee can. They get a handfull for their bedtime snack [​IMG]
