4 chickens going about their mysterious business as they do, when all of a sudden one of them spooks another and they all crash about with a lot of noise and flapping... you must have seen it happen....

then 3 small fluffy feathers float down .... and they EAT THEM !

why? there was plenty of food and water available, and feathers aren't what I would think of as edible !

Mine are always chowing down feathers, I don't know why, in the words of Vermin you don't know you can't eat it until you try
