T is for Treats!

I hate wasting food, whilst these day old scones looked appetising I knew they wouldn't taste as good as they did yesterday, besides I don't really eat scones - yes I love them but I am thinking of my waistline!


As the temperature has taken a rapid drop I knew the hens would love them, so I crumbled them up....


and the girls soon tucked into their breakfast.


They are coming out of their moult now, so we will be getting some eggs shortly.


The trees are showing the definite signs of Autumn.




There are a lot of leaves to be collected, a job I'll have to get well wrapped up for. The coalman will be delivering on Wednesday so we are keeping warm.

My contribution for ABC Wednesday......a cold one I suspect!

  1. Beautiful day here and glorious sunset as I write. Been to Bedale and there it is thick fog - awful. Those scones were giving the hens a real treat I am sure they'll lay after that.

  9. The hens lucked out on that treat! The leaves are falling here, too..it seems fall barely got a start before winter rudely shoved her aside.

  12. My 3 hens are mostly re-feathered, so nice to see 2 of them with their tail feathers back, they look like over-sized Partridges without them lol!
    It will be nice to have some eggs from my girls, although the free range ones I'm buying are not too expensive and taste o.k, there is nothing like 'Home-laid' is there?xxx

  13. As always, I love looking at your yard and your hens! Great re-purposing of leftovers!

  14. Oh those lucky hens! I'd eat day old scones if there was enough strawberry jam and cream to go with them. The trees are beautiful. Why not let the wind blow the leaves away? -- probably too wet underfoot, I suppose. We have more rain coming next week --YEAH!! Got to get up and clear the gutters in readiness -- or at least my husband does!

  15. I hate waste as well. Chickens aren't an option for me, but I do compost a lot of kitchen waste. My compost makes great soil for my garden. - Margy

  16. I love scones! But I've only eaten them in the USA, so who knows they taste different in the UK! Fall is always later in California than the Northern regions!

  17. when I fed my birds with old bread, I don't even smash it up.

    What is refeathering? I never saw my mum's hens refeather.
