Frozen spinach for the girls

Yesterday I defrosted some frozen spinach and mixed it in two dishes of mash. The girls loved it. I wasn’t sure how they would take to it but they picked the spinach out of the mash and wolfed it down.

By the afternoon all the spinach and all the mash had gone. I think that’s a success. This is great as I have stocked up the freezer with frozen spinach and this means the girls can continue to have their daily greens.

The girls were eager to try it
They like it

I am really pleased that the girls like the spinach. This morning I decided to try it without the mash. I just put the defrosted spinach on their patio area. The girls were happy with eating it like this so that is what I will do from now on.

One problem solved quite easily. It’s great to be able to give the girls their daily greens.

      I am really pleased that they like it. I have never needed to try them on it before but it’s great to be able to keep supplied with their greens.

    Your girls are all looking really healthy 🙂

      They are and I am so thrilled with that. We had a run of bad luck during the summer but now we have a smaller flock and they seem to be a settled and healthy flock so I am happy with that and long may it continue. I am counting our blessings. They are all looking great and all laying apart from retired old girl, Speckles, and that is fine too. Touch wood, all is good.

    It is good that you can maintain their normal routine; I know mine are missing their turf, but I can;t do anything about it just now. Digging over sections of the run really keeps them happy, however.

      I agree that it is good to keep to their routine where possible which I am managing to do. I dig the run over once a week and they love it even though this time there were no worms to be found. It does give them more to dig in themselves though.
