Remembering my girls: Lollipop sticks

Who knew that simple wooden lollipop sticks would be so popular?  Both Atilla & Raspy were great fans of them.  For most of their lives they would be happy to chew away until just a tiny splinter remained.  Forget about expensive toys…. just give them a wooden stick!  It could keep them quiet for ages.

They were introduced to the sticks when young but used to play with them more than chew.  Hours would go by with them just hanging on them, doing the splits, grabbing one away from the other & of course having a nibble.

Here are some videos of them:

The chick-like nibble would soon turn into full blown adult hen destruction & the sticks would not last long.  No matter… I always made sure I had them in stock. 🙂
