Feeding The Chickens On A Winter Morning
Last night I took some leftover broth that had some carrot bits in it and tossed in some oats and let it sit overnight. This morning I took it out to the hens who were mostly across the creek headed to the barn.
When I called out "chick, chick, chick" they came running.
A few girls stayed over at the barn, but those who came enjoyed it. The brown partridge cochin on the left was not letting a few of the hens get close to eat, they have to wait. She's large and in charge.
They are laying again, now that the daylight lasts longer. We are enjoying having fresh eggs again. Between the delicious eggs and the entertainment they provide, chickens are a fun animal to keep.
