Welcome to our series "Feathered Friend Friday." Every Friday I write a post with interesting facts, photos, videos, or funny stories about our chickens and guineas. If you need to catch up, you'll find all the Feathered Friend Friday posts here.
There's something I love about watching my chickens as they enjoy a special treat.
When they see me coming down the hill with something in my hand, they know what's up. They all rush to the fence and line up waiting impatiently for me to make it down to them.
If I have a treat they've never seen before, they will eye it cautiously for a moment before deciding to take a taste. Usually they decide it's pretty good, so they chow down. If their treat is something messy or stringy, it's especially fun to watch them tear into it.
I observe as they methodically bite away at the treat, tails up in the air.
They usually make pretty quick work of special treats, and then go about their business. And so do I. But it's fun to take a treat break every once in a while, even if you're not the one partaking.
