Lee, Brave Conqueror
That's when I learned you don't just put watermelon rinds in your chicken house without telling everyone that they're actually food!
You should have seen the stampede in all directions last night!
"EVIL ALIUMS!!!! EVIL ALIUMS!!!!! SHE'S PUT EVIL ALIUMS IN HERE AND THEY'RE GOING TO EAT US!!!!!"
Finally Lee, one of our Red Sex-Linkeds, screwed up her courage and in an effort to save the entire flock, gave one of the evil aliens a good pecking to chase it away. That's when she discovered it was edible, but she didn't want to stay too close to it cause after all, you never know what kind of ray guns those guys are carrying, do you?
As someone on the House Chicken list said, "Chicks will eat anything, but try feeding chicks a tiny piece of spring greens - you'd think it was talking to them or something. "I'll eat your brains..oh yes I will...."
