Chicken meets sprout

Posted by on Wednesday 21 December 2011 in chickens | 3 comments

Since we’re not big sprout eaters in this house, our chickens hadn’t tried them before this week. I got a big bag of them reduced to just pennies at the supermarket nearly closing time the other day and thought I’d offer them up to the girls as a leafy treat.

“Hmmm? What is that crazy green thing? A mini cabbage?”

“Noooooooooooooooooo! Iccccccccccccck!”

“Dude! What the heck!?”

The black rock chickens liked them at least but the ginger girls, particularly this one (Green) like me a little less now ;)

    My girls LOVE sprouts, but they have to be cooked first! Picky eaters!

    Our chickens had their first sprout this Christmas too. They loved them!
