Despite the still cold temperatures, sometimes in the low thirties, we have already begun feasting on goodies from the garden. The "girls" are now literally cooped up, otherwise we'd have a moonscape instead of a garden. They are voracious eaters and are drawn to anything green, or red. I supplement their diet with lots of leafy green trimmings gleaned from a local green grocer and they get a little bit of raw meat. I think they'd prefer to be out and about, but . . . too bad! As our farmer friend once said, "Have you seen the size of their brains?!"
