As a special birthday treat, the chicks got their first taste of non-chicken feed. I cut up some beet greens we weren't using and placed them in the brooder. As you can see from the pic below, the sight of alien food terrified them! (Or maybe that was because Eddy was standing next to me...). In any event, they curiously and slowly started peeking at the greens, but mostly just scoffed at them and fake sneezed. Just when I was about to think creatively about sneaking veggies into their diet (insert google searches about feeding children veggies), I returned to find the bowl empty. Birthday success!
