I was looking for something in the refrigerator when I found some strawberries I bought a while ago. Some of them weren't looking so good anymore, so I decided to give them to the chickens for a treat.
Chickens love red things, so the strawberries were a big hit! I don't know what it is about the speckled sussex hens, but they love anything you will hand feed them. They are very friendly girls.
A lot of the chickens fought over the strawberries. Mitchell loved feeding them to the chickens. Most ate right out of his hand. They have learned that when we call them they are going to get some kind of special treat.
