My Chickens have green talons.
I am serious. My intentionally planted sunflowers failed to thrive.
My chickens overlooked sunflower seeds in their seed mix...flourishing. I have no idea what their secret growing tips are and they are all keeping mum. It is a conspiracy, I am certain.
So dotted throughout our orchard are neglected flowering sunflowers. Also out there are sunflower seeds that couldn´t be bothered making an appearance simply because they were planted by me. Maybe they are waiting until my back is turned, or we have sold the property and moved on.
Either way, the chickens are more skillful at growing sunflowers than myself.
How is that for demoralising?
