Feeding Ayam Kampung

We went back to my in-law’s place last Sunday and Ayden requested to feed the chickens. To him it’s like a trip to a petting zoo. I used to get very annoyed with these chickens I tell you. It’s not so much the chickens that I hate but their droppings. They are every where and the worst is when you stepped on it before entering the car. 

But now with kids, I tend to mellow a bit and tolerate things better lah. So what if got poop? Wash lor…

I did not let them enter the chicken coop though. A rooster attacked me when I was Ethan’s age. I do not want that to happen to my kids especially little Ayden who is still very short. Imagine if the rooster flies up and peck his eyes! Yeah.. so not letting them enter the chicken coop.

Ethan wanted to feed the chickens too but can you guess what are they feeding them?

Take a closer look on what Ayden is holding…

My sister-in-law actually gave the boys this to feed the chickens:

penang tau sar piah

Penang Tau Sar Piah! 

LoL! The chickens here are so spoilt, they are eating my favourite tau sar piah (bean paste biscuit)! I see oso sakit hati! I super love Penang’s tau sar piah, Ipoh’s heong peng, Sitiawan’s kom piang and Seremban’s siew pau. If you are in any of these places, do tapau some home for me please… but don’t lah feed the chickens with those aiyo!

Anyway, my sis-in-law showed me the box and pointed to the date. The tau sar piah expired dy. How can anyone let tau sar piah untouched until they expire? *cries*

    I didn’t know chickens would eat tau sar pneah but I know they’ll eat durians (strangely).

    Yeah, its better to keep them away from inside the coop but ok to let them feed the chickens la. In Sg, the kids here don’t even have these chances, they only eat them. Aiyo …what a waste of the tau sar pang. They bought already and don’t eat ah ?

    Ok ok ..next time I buy for you in Ipoh. I get you the fresh fresh ones. You can meet me in PJ.

    Where’s the kampung? Far from town? Here, in the town residential areas, they do not allow rearing of chickens…for the good of all.

    It’s in a remote place but right next to a police station. Haha.
