Around April I finally gave and let my wife get some chicks... a few I said, now there are 12 (was 15, RIP to 2 from cross beak and one to a hawk) Anyway, my wife goes to tell me, "oh honey, they'll be great for the garden, they will keep bugs out". For those of you whom have a garden, do your chicks egg your tomatoes??! LOL, our girls wear those poor red tomatoes out!!!! Also, is it bad for them to eat watermelon? Recently I cut a watermelon open and oh my lord, they went on a feeding frenzy!!! It is so fun to watch them it and them shack their heads back in forth from getting juice all over their head.
