    Hi guys.

    As I'm new to chicken keeping, I still follow my flock around constantly with my camera, adoring everything they do. Here is a short vid of them jumping for meal worm treats. Don't worry, I don't normally make them jump for food. I just saw them doing it to reach the leaves on a bush the other day and wanted to get it on camera. Aren't they just ADORABLE?

    YES, they are ADORABLE!!! I love jumping chickens. Those fluffy butts in the air are so cute. I think chickens actually enjoy running after or jumping for their food. I have seen my chickens chase crickets when they had a treat sitting right in front of them. I'm going to watch the video again now ; )

    LOL. Next I'm going to tackle getting my chickens running on camera. I just LOVE watching them run.
