Fruit Time

Most days the girls have some fruit in the afternoon, and enjoy this nutritious snack. Today it was some apple and pear cores, but they love plums, strawberries and other fruit too! We try and hold the cores up for them to peck at, rather than throwing the core onto the ground where it will get mucky very quickly, and also try and give each hen the chance to have some, though if White had her way, she’d walk off with a whole apple core and devour it! Note that too many pips are not ideal, so we remove them from apple cores before presenting them to the hens.
