Fridays are becoming the Girls favourite day of the week. I put all the "cuttings" from the things I prep for the food photographer in the "chicken" pot (I don't need a green bin--I have chickens). Today they even got steelhead trout skin (and a small piece of leftover trout). They were fighting with each other over that trout skin.

Chickens eat fish?

Well, chickens love bugs, worms, and yes, PF, chickens eat fish. Chicken keepers are cautioned not to feed too much fish or flax seed to chickens--the eggs can taste fishy. The omega oils in fish and flax seed are great for the eggs. The Girls were chasing each other trying to steal the fish skin prize. It is fun to watch them do that. They are so entertaining. My friend who manned the dish sink went home with two dozen eggs (she works for eggs) and a half a dozen I had hard cooked (she's a vegetarian, so I did smoked tofu and hard cooked eggs for her). Her younger son loves hard cooked eggs, the older one loves smoked tofu. And the leftover arugula-quinoa-fennel-orange salad went home. Her husband loved it. She didn't have to add a lot to make supper. She liked that. And, she had fun.

So I was completely wrong, chickens are omnivores. No wonder eggs are so good for you!

Chickens with fishing rods...you'd have to stop them from eating the bait.

RIP Hetta. Poor Hetta, she was "off" yesterday, so I brought her in, put her in the basement by the wood stove. She didn't revive, I then put her in the bathroom and steamed her...brought her out to the farm with me...figured she'd die out here and this is where he life with us started. It was not a good day. Poor baby.
