cotton candy for chickens

ZsuZsu chasing spiders outside
The girls are definitely enjoying the three day weekend: they've spent a couple hours outside each day so far.

We've done a lot of work in the yard, including moving our table and chairs to the mulch circle in the middle of the yard. This is the same mulch circle that the girls get to run around in. At first, I thought they'd be grateful for a little more cover to scratch the mulch under (they seem not to like to be exposed to things from above). Little did I know they'd have a field day eating all the spider webs that had formed around the legs of the table and the chairs. Over the course of an hour, they picked the undersides clean.

Not a spider web was spared, and the glee with which they attacked the job reminded me of the way little kids attack cotton candy. So there you are: spider webs are cotton candy for chickens.
