Remembering how my other chickens loved dandelions, I was thrilled to see dandelion blooms outside yesterday. I knew my new little chickens were probably too small to eat the flowers but since I knew it wouldn’t hurt them, I picked a few and put into their box.
They scattered way away from the flowers and then gradually, ever so cautiously moved a bit closer . . but didn’t get very close.
They never did eat any of them by they wore themselves out trying to see what this new and obviously dangerous item was.
Sometimes when they sleep, it looks like they just dropped . . I guess that’s what they do at this point. We need to get a roost in there for them.
