I still have a couple of things to do to the chicx tractor like cover the nest boxes until they are old enough to lay. the chix ( 6wks) are not in the tractor yet. But I notice there are lots of ants crawling all over inside and out of the tractor. will the chicks eat the ants or other way around. Don't know what kind of ants, could be red ants as we have lots of them here in Florida. Oh yea, caught a cricket this am and tossed it into the brooder,,,,and then the fight was on. Cricket lost. Now they all want their own cricket.
