On a lighter note, here are two chickens eating spaghetti. They were adopted right after I filmed this!


They are really fun chickens! They run right over when you call them, and they like to be petted. The adopter was really impressed by how friendly they are. He already had a few chickens and some ducks, and he and his kids just love having them as pets. So we're really happy that Ermintrude and Azalea will have such a nice new home! (And, yes, we did tell the adopter that spaghetti is their favorite!)

So awesome. Is it common to feed chickens spaghetti?

They'll eat just about anything! You can give them veggies, fruits, stale bread, cooked pasta and rice, some kinds of nuts and seeds, weeds from your garden (if no pesticides are used)... they like a bit of variety in their diet. I know some people give them milk and yogurt, but that seems really weird to me (as well as nonvegan)!

Omg! I laughed so hard at this for some reason.

We have this book at work. It has pictures of all sorts of fancy chicken breeds and they are amazing. I especially like the ones with funny hairdos.

we had that calendar one year! and yes, fancy chickens with wacky updos are the fanciest of all fancy chickens. to clarify, when i say "strut around with," i mean we'd be in the yard or something, and the chicken would strut the way chickens do, and i'd chicken-walk behind it. i wouldn't, like, tote it about town or anything. probably. maybe i would.

Azalea and ERMINTRUDE! Perfect! <3

I kept waiting for Ermintrude to notice the spaghetti strand hanging on Azalea's body. They do love their noodles!

I have seen chickens eat yogurt. It is hilarious.

Yes, they are the best names, aren't they? I had a hard time convincing everyone else of that fact. Everyone would just say, "Here, chickens!" and I was all "THEY HAVE NAMES, YOU KNOW".

I don't know if they ever noticed that piece of spaghetti! It was still stuck to Azalea when I had to go into the dog kennel, and the adopter picked them up shortly thereafter.

Chickens with spaghetti!
My gran's chickens get suitable leftovers added to their food and spaghetti is their favourite thing ever. They chase each other around for it and barely get a chance to eat it because they're trying to keep it away from the other chickens. I think it is because it wriggles like worms.
