OK, so Liza won the egg race (she didn't lay another one today, but let's give the girl a break). But that's not why she's the new front-runner in the Most Favoured Chicken contest. No, that is because this evening the girls were out for Chicken Exercise hour and in five minutes she devoured twenty or so snails (I think the egg laying is making her more adventurous about her food). The other girls were ignoring them, still, so this was a big suckup move.
I immediately went and gathered several snails for her from the hydrangeas. I see a much less-chewed garden in my future.
