These chickens think every time we go outside, we have treats for them. They come running up to us and follow us around the entire time we’re out working. I can take a handful of their feed from their food bucket, throw it out and they’re as happy as can be. They think it’s special.
If we’re walking and stop, they will actually run into us. Forget trying to walk around outside with something in my hand that’s not for them. They’ll take me down! Not really but when I go out to the greenhouse and grab mint or basil, if they can see it, they’re flying/jumping trying to get whatever is in my hand.
This has nothing to do with the chickens but we’ve never had many acorns here til this past year. Last spring was very rainy for us and I guess the oak trees were happy. The ground under the oak trees is covered with acorns. It’s everywhere on the property. It’s funny because I never noticed that we didn’t have many acorns til we had an abundance of acorns.
