Snacking on Cherry Blossoms


The wind and rains of the last few days have driven many of the cherry blossom petals to the ground. For a brief time every spring, the chickens get to feast on cherry blossom petals as they fall to the ground. The cherry branches aren’t that high. If they wanted, the chickens could fly up into the branches and feast on cherry blossom petals, but they don’t. They wait for them to flutter to the ground.

Next to come are the pear blossom petals, followed by the apple blossom petals, a whole season of sweet petals to enjoy.
