Why?

Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)

Just a little spoiled.

It's been fairly...brisk the last few morning, temperatures hovering(and even dipping a bit below) the freezing point.  That has me feeling kind of bad for the chickens.  Everything I've read says they handle cold weather fairly okay, and I have a few things I can do to help them out when things get really cold, still...I feel bad for them, waking up to their cold pellets and crumble.

So, yesterday, I made them up a batch of oatmeal, mixing some apple sauce into it for them.


This morning, I made them more warm food, nuking up some leftover mac and cheese/venison burger.

The funny part was watching them jump on the burger...heck, I couldn't get the camera going in time. My daughter had a pretty good theory on why they like the venison burger so much:
'Well dad, chickens evolved from therapod-type dinosaurs...and deer are a prey animal, so it's only natural that the chickens predatory instincts kicked in.'

  2. Grrrrrr....it is way to easy to delete posts...it doesn't even ask you 'are you sure you wanted to hit that button with the laptop mouse pad?'

    Brigid, I try to avoid giving them anything that is mostly egg/chicken, although I have given them left over fried rice before, that had some scrambled eggs in it.
