The Chickenburger


Ok, so less than a minute ago, my friend Tracey sent me a photo of where she is at this moment.
At the oldest drive-in restaurant in Canada! The Chickenburger. Check it out! It's in Nova Scotia, Canada. She took this photo on her phone.

Got BALLs




So.
Dave bought some balls last night at Dicks.
Golf Balls.
I put them in the hen house in the nests.
I also put up a privacy cloth so they can feel more comfortable.
Hopefully this will get them BROODY!

Cross your fingers. We gotta git some eggs!

;)

No eggs yet. WTF.


So I either have lazy hens (if one's lazy, they're all lazy) or they are not comfy about their nesting areas.

This weekend, I will put golf balls in their nests for them to sit on and block off their nesting dorms to give them more privacy. I can't believe I don't have any yet. So disappointing. My sister-in-law has 10 hens and in 4 weeks, they have pooped out 162 eggs. I have major egg envy.
If these birds aren't going to lay, they are going to be dinner. haha.

So I will leave you with this funny video... interesting how chickens leave their head in one position no matter how they move.

A Real Treat



Chickens love treats.
This right here is cucumber, celery, shredded cheese and mealworms.The mealworms are high in protein and are great to give during the nesting season. Dee-lish! The big bowl is for Barb, Betty, Jimmy and Ronald Reagan. The small dish is for Sookie, who is still living by herself in the HUGE fenced in garden. This weekend, we plan to get Jimmy in there with her so she's not alone.

Sookie: CHICKEN ON VIDEO!

Hey... thought it would be cool for people to see Sookie in live action. Check out the small clip. It's tiny... but I never posted a video before... so let's see how this works.
Thanks!
