    Yup!! its true...

    Went in the Orp chick pen this morning and to my
    surprise there was a dead mouse at the water'er [​IMG]

    So I watched for awhile to see what might happen,
    the next thing I knew a game of keep away broke out!!

    Those chicks had done kilt dat mouse and where tring
    to find a way to eat it!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
