So, I just noticed that there is a whole ton of tiny ants coming out of the basement wall next to the brooder. The basement wall is a porous soapstone, and the brooder is just a large wire dog crate, so there's no way to keep the ants out of the wall, and then some of them naturally fall into the brooder. My question is, should I try to get rid of them (move the brooder away from the wall, spray insecticide on the wall) OR should I look at it as a free protein source for the chicks?? Will the chicks learn to eat the ants?? I only have 3 chicks--two are 1 week old now, and the third is 1 day old right now. They only seem mildly interested in the ants--they picked a couple up, but they dropped them right away and I don't think they ate any.
