    last night when checking on my chicks (3am), a moth flew into the brooder (chicks are 4 days old) and was quickly snached up by one of my baby Black Australorps. I was amazed at how fast she grabbed the flying snack. Of course the other 5 chicks tried to take it away from her, but she faced into a corner and ate it. I did not know that they could be so fast at that age.
    All are fine this morning....still working on the chix tractor.

    If your chicks don't yet have access to the outdoors and grit, be sure to provide them some in their brooder to help digest their "snacks".
