I normally go out with the thought just to get them (being the hens,, obviously!) fed and watered and leave them to it - then end up just standing and watching, then thinking I might as well be having a cup of coffee to warm my hands, then go and fuss and fiddle with things in the run, etc etc! I think I'm just making excuses to watch them! I gave them crumb porridge with peas in this morning but as it was the first time they've seen 'strange little green things' they were quickly removed, one by one, and trampled underfoot! I'll keep trying to get some goodness into them tho - they're still learning that they can eat things apart from Exbatt food from the grub container.
If I hadn't stood watching, I'd have missed Keppel find and devour her first worm yesterday! :dance:
Don't we all have other things we should be getting on with? Well, yes...but they're not as much fun are they?!
