Is anybody tired of us talking about our chickens? What can I say, they are the excitement in our boring lives. BackyardChickens.com is my chicken bible. I go on the forum a few times a week to find answers to my chicken-raising questions. According to many other chicken owners, chickens love cool watermelon on a hot day. So I tried it today, and as you can see, they LERVE it. (how many times did I say chickens on this post?) oh, and the what’s-their-names kids that live in our house love watermelon, too!
