One man's trash...

So...why would I be excited about being given a box full of rotten fruit...tomatoes, cherries, corn and a cantaloupe? Well, it's dinner, of course :-D Dinner for the chickens.

Here are my dozen lovely hens in their yard, enjoying the bounty. Cantaloupe is a greatly favoured chicken delicacy, and, as such, both halves were pecked clean in minutes. After they had eaten their fill they all lounged in the sun, dustbathing and napping and doing other chickeny things. I went out to visit with them and my lap was filled with more than the usual amount of chickens vying for a bit of a backrub(they love having that bit between their wings and up by their neck rubbed) Happy chickens!

Now that I have a laying flock, I think I need a breeding flock.....

Chickens are ugly and disgusting.

And stupid.

And they give you cancer.

Actually, they're made out of cancer.

IT'S TRUE!!!
