Babies' first salad

The little ones made it through their first night in the brooder and were up and chirping when I went out to the workshop this morning.

They were pushing and shoving to get in to the feeders so I brought them out something new to try: their first taste from the kitchen.  I chopped up a bowl of baby kale into little tiny pieces.

When I put a pile of the kale down in the brooder the chick did what chickens do: starred at it for a while, curious but cautious. 

Eventually someone tried it then they all jumped in and there were little pieces of kale flying all around!

Seems like they enjoyed their first salad.
