It may not sound nice, but I'm told by a friend it's their nickname. Chickens, a.k.a. "pigs without ears". But when you don't have a garbage disposal and you haven't been keeping up with composting lately, this is a great alternative.
Take a watermelon, say,
watch them check out the rinds,
and move in,
a little closer,
mmmm, that's good stuff.
I've started baking to try to use more eggs, that, and we've been having more for breakfast. We're getting 3 a day now and even though they're still small that can add up quickly.
I'm going to be on baking fire when we have around 8 a day, either that or we'll have some lucky neighbors.
