    I just had to to post about my 2 week chicks. We brought them out into the yard last night. I purposely did not put anything on the ant hills to kill them this summer hoping the chicks would take care of them. BOY DID THEY! They went right to town chasing and eating. It was hilarious. My children even got a kick out of it. Maybe Dad isnt as nuts as they thought.

    Hehehe... aren't chickens wonderful for insect control? Our Olivia hatched some babies out last Wednesday & Thursday and started venturing out of the coop with them yesterday at only 5 days old! They're not her babies biologically, but they are bantam cochin mixes that came from Linda's (gryeyes) flock. Olivia's already showing them how to scratch for little buggies in the dirt.

    They're SO cute and fluffy! I can't wait to see what they grow up to look like.
