My Chickens are Spoiled

Every afternoon Pierce likes to have a snack of popcorn.  I used to do microwave popcorn, until I noticed that it gave me headaches every time I ate it.  So for a while I didn't eat popcorn.
Then Paul's parents got us this Whirleypop.
We've had it for a while.
It just takes a minute or two longer than microwave - it's actually really quick.
The only thing I don't like, in fact, is just that it takes up a lot of space (we have a small kitchen).

Half cup of popcorn kernals, 1 tbsp of olive oil, and a couple of minutes later you have perfectly fluffy popcorn.
Pierce puts various flavor seasonings on his.
And never eats more than two bowls.
And even if I eat two bowls, we still have a lot left over.

So, what to do with all those leftovers?
Turns out the ladies (and Crockett) just love popcorn.
In fact, the chickens have gotten a little spoiled.
Now, every day around 2:30 they come wait under the porch for their popcorn.
And I confess.
I may have just possibly made them popcorn one day when Pierce wasn't even home.

Wow, that reminds me that I haven't had popcorn in AGES! May have to pop me up some tomorrow for lunch.

I like the trained chickens!

That is funny that they wait for it now. I definitely don't think there is anything wrong with spoiling them... heck maybe this will help them lay more for you :)

I love that whilypop! Never used one but it looks awesome! We used to pop popcorn in cast iron on an open fire...with no lid. It was a blast when we were kids and I bet your chickens would love to clean up for you!
