|The head of lettuce already torn apart for easier access|
They take bigger bites than I do, I swear! Lena Horne Hen tore off a piece of lettuce two inches square and swallowed until it went down.
|OK. This one is a little too big to swallow.|
The rest of the girls didn't take smaller bites because they were polite. It was just the luck of the tear. Grab what you can.
|Getting down to the last leaf|
When a whole head of bolted lettuce (all you garden folks know that's what it's called when it is starting to grow tall and make seeds) lands in your yard, in the hen world you have to get to busy or there'll be nothing left to cackle about (or eat).
|Katy reigns over the core|
The first lettuce plantings have turned bitter, so chicken Things I get to do today are fling a head over the hen-pen fence and watch the gals gobble it down. I'm expecting them to say "oink."
