    ME - the ultimate treat dispenser! Anything I bring into the run, they want to sample and sometimes devour, including the occasional finger. [​IMG]

    This is our first time with Silkie Chickens. Today I had some leftover brown rice cooked with
    broth instead of water. Just a little left....gave to the Chickens. They loved it.
