Last week, we had the joy of watching our friend Jessica’s chickens while she was out of town. Spending time with the three ladies is hilarious, entertaining, and means all the fresh eggs you can eat. Hooray! Of course, we have to thank the ladies for all their greatness.. which we do… with an ingredient guaranteed to win over any chicken’s heart. Here come the girls!
Their swinging feed bin is pretty cool. And they enjoy pecking at shells for a little beak strengthening.
Hmm, what’s in your laying box, ladies?
Wowsers!! Nice job, ladies! It’s so exciting to open up the lid and see what they’ve laid. We ate a LOT of eggs over this glorious little time period.
But the ultimate delight for these chicken ladies? It’s meal worms!! Yeay, dead meal worms!! They’re so gross that I didn’t include a picture of them, but the ladies go bananas when you sprinkle them on the ground, as you can see.
It’s always sad to say goodbye. Thank goodness Jessica lives right up the street.
