My hens have made friends with the birds and chipmunks that come to dine at... and underneath...our feeders. Judd Brink, owner of Minnesota Backyard Birds, captured this photo of one of my leghorns named Greta when she flew onto the rim of the birdbath to quench her thirst. An old metal pail, with a tiny hole to allow a slow drip of water to splash into the birdbath, hangs on a branch overhead. Judd comes out twice a week during our May through October bed and breakfast season to clean and refill all of my feeders with seed, fruit, suet, and mealworms. He varies the food depending upon the season and the types of birds in the area at a particular time. I have also purchased feeders from him based upon his recommendations. He provides an extremely valuable service. My bird population has dramatically increased because of the proper food being served in clean feeders that are kept consistently filled.
