    So I just gave my chickens some yogourt for the first time, who the heck would have thought this, they went NUTS. So I think I may have gone a little mad, as when I am doing groceries I find myself picking stuff up for them. Anyone else guilty of this?

    Oh dear, we buy corn on the cob for our chickens all the time!!!! I keep thinking how much I would like to eat that corn myself until I see them eat it. Then it's all worth the sacrifice :D . . . Although I am still rather partial to corn on the cob . . . :p

    I would ask my wife but she is busy scrambling some eggs for the chickens.

    We need to remember that our chickens are part of our life's and give us a lot of joy so we need to spoil them once in a while also. We go out and sit with ours a lot just to watch them do their thing and lets us relax also after a hard day at work. Can't go shopping with buying something for the kids. I call all my chickens the kids.

    I like to hang a corn cob from the roof of their pen like a pinata.

    That's a great idea, I usually just hold onto it. I'll be giving this a try, thank you for sharing.

    You could also try kefir, it's even better for them (and you). I just started making my own kefir a few weeks ago, thanks to a post I ran across here. :thumbsup
