Our compost pile might be suffering, but these chickens are living large. Tomatoes, fresh arugula, zucchini, eggplant, rice, oatmeal, even some seaweed sprinkles. They also went Japanese with some peanut butter whole wheat udon noodles. Those were a huge hit, I’ve never seen noodles disappear so quickly.
And watermelon. We purchased a big ol’ watermelon about a month ago, and somehow never cut up. Have you ever done that? So incredibly wasteful, I know. Both of us kept mentioning “we really need to cut up that watermelon” but it was always when we were headed out the door, or about to jump on a conference call. Both are bad times to delve into hacking up a watermelon… And so a month passed. Poor watermelon. Good thing we now have feathered disposal units at our beck and call! I thought a juicy red watermelon would trump the noodles, but turns out they’re carb freaks.
However, they’re working their way through it. Seven small hens vs one huge watermelon. Who shall win this epic battle? Any bets?
