A Few Treats
The livestock all enjoy a few treats
Sometimes with a variety of other animals about the place the chickens get overlooked,
This time of year there is some bargain treats around that they enjoy, even more so when they have removed every bit of green from there run.
Tucking into 10p pumpkin for breakfast
I got a load of pumpkins the other week 10p each, they store fairly well, quartered up the chooks really enjoy them, I also keep a look out for squashes and melons for them.
Apples, Bovey Belle fellow blogger brought me up two big boxes of apples, I scatter about a dozen around the run before letting them out and they love them. Brassica's hung from the frame of the run are another favourite although they do ave to work a bit jumping up for those, another is one of those solid cabbages, rammed onto a long nail in a bit of wood, they work at it for days.
As do the piggies again they are scattered around there enclosure,
you can here the squeals of joy when they find one.
