Today’s Strategy: Load ’em Up

Romaine, do your thing!

As my bruised little toes throb from yesterday’s award-winning stubbing session, I write this post in the hopes–prayers, really–that Mabel is a quiet little egg-layer today. The strategy? Load up the food and excitement in their run. Romaine hanging from a wire. Oats and flax seed and greens spread along the run, covered with a light layer of alfalfa hay. Banana chunks spread here and there. A small frozen corn-on-the-cob under one particularly large alfalfa covering–a prize for someone to discover in a few moments. Public radio blaring talk-talk-talk morning news from the garage.

Fingers crossed.

  1. WOW…mine are living in squalor compared to your spoiled hens. You are blessed to be able to dote on them daily like that. Mine get a handful of sunflowers seeds in the am and a head of lettuce when I get home around 5. I’m bummed my persimmon tree is kaput for the year now. Hope your bribery works!
