|First find a mouse|
Genetically hens are highly diverse, visit a local poultry show and you will see 30 or 40 different breeds because of there dinosaur ancestry.
Research shows that my hens are evolved from and are the most closely related to ancient feathered dinosaurs. They have more microchromosomes and a more diverse genome than any other bird species, just like the feathered dinosaurs.
This morning I watched what looked like a small bit of dinosaur behaviour; a hen swallowing a mouse whole. Luckily I had my camera phone with me and my birds are extremely tame. Poultry will eat almost anything they find palatable, whole grain, insects, earthworms, grass and this morning mice.
|Then swallow it whole- headfirst of course|
If you enjoyed an egg for breakfast this morning that was laid by free range hens perhaps it was mouse in the hen's diet that made it taste so good.
This mouse was supplied by Mimi the cat she leaves them outside (most of the time) as gifts for me.
