    I caught one in the barn, I usually toss them to the chickens at random. I tossed this one, a little stunned after I smacked it with a feed scoop in Dutch's pen. He immediately called the girls, cautiously touched it with his beak, it moved and I swear that boy just about jumped into Alabama [​IMG] He then ran and jumped in the coop [​IMG] and Iris came over and she and Hazel played tug of war with it. Iris won and ran under the coop. About 10 minutes later Dutch finally came out of the coop, walking carefully, looking all around! I guess he was making sure he did not step on the Chicken Eating Beast [​IMG]
