pecans

Ever wonder what pecans look like when you pick them up off the ground? The flower like thing is actually the husk- it starts out green and soft, and eventually it dries out and splits into four petals, exposing the nuts inside.  Our chickens really love them- sometimes we call them “pecan monsters” – they actually recognize the sound of a nut cracking open, and will run over when they hear the sound- expecting delicious treats!
