    I was just outside enjoying the rare sunshine along with my chooks. One girl was working hard in a dirt hole all by herself. I watched as she slurped up 11 worms!!
    These aren't the big red worms. They're smaller and black, but still 11 of them??? Where do they put them all?

    I'm surprised she wasn't spotted by one of the other...Only to have to run because the others were chases her with one of the worms in her mouth.....They do love worms once they "get it"

    Just got my worms in today (trying vermicomposting), and gave one to the girls. I could have watched the game of worm keep away all afternoon!

    11 worms? That IS impressive![​IMG] Maybe your chick has a hollow leg?[​IMG]
