Chicken gourmet delight?

When we go to collect our daily eggs around lunch time we always take the hens a treat.

The other day I crumbled up some stale fruit cake and added some vegetable shortening.

I remembered that I had seen a chickweed growing in the garden so I added that to the mix.

Henrietta was first on the scene to experience the chicken gourmet delight of the day.

Worth the effort?

Yes, when we get eggs like this every day.

Collecting eggs must be a delight - almost like receiving a gift every day.

You are so sweet to those gals! I haven't ever fed shortening to mine. Does it help in some way?
