When you think of spoiled chicken, you probably think of a chicken you bought at the store to cook and now it’s rotten. Gross! But my injured chicken is getting pretty spoiled. We’ve given her so many treats, she thinks we’re supposed to bring her something every time we go down there.
Vince asked for a pound cake with strawberries so I whipped up a pound cake and thawed a package of strawberries. Not fair for all of us to have some and the chicken not get any so I fixed her a little bowl.
She wasn’t real sure about it at first.
But, one taste and she was thanking me! Well, she was too busy gobbling it all down and she didn’t really stop to thank me but that’s ok.
And then, I went outside and . . oh, Ruby is not happy that the black chicken is inside getting special treatment. A few loose feathers and she’s getting pound cake and strawberries! NO!!! It just isn’t right!
Sorry, Ruby. I just hope you’re not the one causing all the trouble in the chicken coop! (If you enlarge the picture, you can see snow around her beak where she was out pecking in the snow. Isn’t she cute?) Who would ever have thought we’d be feeding an injured chicken strawberries and cake. All I wanted was fresh eggs!
