Do they slurp when they eat?

I don't know about slurping but plenty of wind the other end from all the protien they find in my garden!

Oh dear! What are their names?

No Names but we have a dancing duck who waltzes around the male and a handicapped drake who was a runt when young but has ended up with just a droppy wing. How much mess do your chickens make in the garden scratching? this is why I went for ducks. Being a retired farmers wife, I thought the chickens would devastate my orderly borders during my retirement! Your garden looks incredably tidy with your chickens roaming free, unless you go behind them constantly repairing the damage.

They have selectively removed some plants, like Forget me nots. I put a ring of little sticks around newly planted stuff to stop them being grubbed up. But mostly the garden has mature shrubs and perennials ( all pre-chicken!). Anything that they like I move to the front garden! So, yes, a bit of a pest....but then so are a lot of people I know!! Also, no worse than children with footballs, and the garden had to contend with them once!
