December in the Chicken Coop

This month our hens have been...

... tucking into warm food. Chicken food tends to come in two forms - pellets (easier and cleaner to deal with) and mash (same stuff just not formed into pellets). Mostly we feed our hens pellets, but at this time of year we switch to giving them a bowl of mash-porridge each morning which they love. I don't know if its the warmth, or if its just food, but they tuck in really quickly and gobble it up. Particularly when its frosty outside it seems only fair to give them a hot breakfast to start the day.

... refusing to stand still for a photo, leaving me with lots of funky chickens in the pre-work gloom.

    1. They do seem to love it - but then they're equally excited by all kinds of food!
