So in the morning, we gave the chickens some rice;
Also changed their bedding to straw. Well, added some;
Main point of the afternoon was to attempt to pick up all the chickens and give them a lovely reward; mealworms and corn, rice or both.
Olivia was up first. She likes perching on my hand, which is fine with me as long as she doesn’t poo while doing it. She wraps her feet round my claws;
She got rice;
Hyacinth and Phoebe
Hyacinth went after Olivia and got both too. After her was Phoebe who got both.
Next was Sabrina. She didn’t want to know unless I hand fed her mealworms and rice;
Conan was next and really liked the rice and got both for being less flappy than usual;
Cookie, of course, was last. Surprisingly she was very calm as long as you didn’t stroke her too much and just let her eat. It got to the point where I didn’t hold her, as you’ll see in the video!
Finally when all that was over, I gave them the rest.
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye!
