Although we feed our hens chicken feed,
their diet is mostly grass
(we can tell the difference in the Winter,
the eggs aren't as tastey - truly!).
and table scraps
(they love fruit rinds).
The chickens also love eating critters from the yard -
even fighting over them.
We discovered the chickens get equally competitive
over the tiny, wild strawberries growing in our yard.
When wandering in a neighboring (abandoned) yard
we found quite the crop,
and my children diligently gathered for the hens.
The hens were bellies-full thankful.
