And added to it a new fun food item to entertain the chickens, a cabbage-on-a-string!
Now they've had cabbage before...but not hanging swinging from a string. But both items were welcomed and they dived right in...
...except for Rose on the far left, who for whatever reason decided instead to noodle around playing with molted feathers.
The more energetically they pecked, the more the cabbage swung around wildly, which of course only made it more fun as they tried to track it's motion and time their pecks. They had a great time chasing it to and fro.
I don't know what the heck is going on here. It looks like a Dadaist photo shoot. Weedcat sneaking in on the right to photobomb, while Cam in the back looks for all the world like he's wearing a cabbage on his head.
In the end, after many hours the cabbage was reduced to it's core. The watermelon is about half-eaten and will no doubt be enjoyed again tomorrow, although by morning it'll be frozen, which should make for some fine chicken confusion when we let them out of the coop first thing in the morning.
