Whenever I run out of stuff to talk about, that seems like a good time to post a chicken update. Plus I had another ocular migraine this afternoon, and my brain is feeling too tender to be exercised any further than bok boks.
Over the last few weeks, they have been eating more and more and MORE. (Gayle says this is normal.)
You can see their feeder in the background, on the ground, with the green plastic base. It holds about a quart and a half of feed, and it used to be enough for the four of them (given that they get a fresh patch of lawn to eat every day).
A few days ago I finally gave into the inevitable, and added a second feeder. They are eating about one and a half of these a day. Impressive! Then again, they are also popping out an impressive amount of eggs. My take over the last 3 days has been 3.5 eggs per day.
