relatedly in chicken news, among all the silly plants i picked up today was a decorative sweet potato. lovely yellow-green leaves that spill out in profusion. i put it in a container then went out for 1h and by the time i got back the chickens ate the whole damn plant.

when it's sunny in spring chickens will lay out sideways on the grass. they look broke but really just chillin
