because she thinks they're strawberries -- and apparently chickens love strawberries... moldy ones anyway... and cantaloupe, and clover, and calendula, and calla lily leaves, and pomegranate leaves, and nectarine leaves, and peach leaves and plum leaves, and red leaf lettuce, and raw corn, of course. Oh yeah, and red worms. The stupid bird kept pecking at my "persimmon" fingernails (got a free manicure at a charity event on Sunday) -- she's NEVER pecked at anyone in the week that we've had her. All I can figure is she likes the color since she had a moldy strawberry for the first time today. Cluck, cluck.
