It's the age old question that I'm sure you've wanted to ask...
but never have.
So, today I'm asking....
What is it about manure piles?
I mean really....
You'd think there must be something really tasty there,
because everybody loves to grab a snack.
Especially on a sunny afternoon, as the snow melts...
Old Number 6 (yes that's his name...long story) is King of the Hill
as he scratches through freshly thawed compost with a bevy of his favorite gals.
Even more than the chickens, though,
the dogs are always looking for a tasty treat at their favorite
eat in or take out "dive"!
"Don't look so innocent, Oakley..."
"a moment before I took my camera out,
you were right up there with Sammy!"
So, what do the chickens find in the compost piles?
but I am guessing because they are always warm, there must be worms and insects in there.
As for the dogs...
As Sammy says..."The more disgusting, the better!"
I hear there is another snowstorm on it's way.... late tonight into tomorrow.
Any of you in warmer states care to take in some weary travelers???
Say.... me, 5 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 pigs, 18 goats, 12 ducks, 10 guineas, 100+ chickens
and two turkeys?
Oh yea.... and 3 dogs and 5 cats?
We're on our way!
