An Unusual Diet



My girls love a nice worm or 20. I feed them dry ones, I dig up live ones. The video is of me giving them some dried mealworms (I hope).

They like egg white, too, so I cut off a lot of the fried white and give it to them. They go mad for it.

Today they each laid me an egg. Then this evening, I went out to give them some worms, and found them eating some raw egg. It didn't seem to have a shell, just some flabby beige thing, so from the programme on hens I saw the other week, I can only assume it was not yet properly formed. How one of them passed it I can't imagine. They certainly enjoyed it, though.

CANNIBALS!

We used to use mealworms for fishing bait. Honestly, when you asked if they were good it sounded like they answered you!

The worms,no problem.The chicken eating chicken-egg whites or raw whatever...creepy!Heck it's tough for me to eat anything with chicken and eggs in the same dish.Too 'Mother & Son Reunion' for me!

My stepson and his girlfriend had hens once. They gave us some good eggs! I miss fresh eggs. Looks like your hens are happy and healthy. :-)

Jazzy: My brother used to eat worms, just to torment me..I reminded him of it a while back and he looked like he was going to be sick

I hate to mention another MAN on your site Val, but perhaps they saw one of Sly Stallone's movies when he was eating a raw egg shake. Hahaha. I slay me! Cheers!!
