I needed a little bit of excitement and I wanted to get the chickens used to foraging for bugs. In addition to bringing them a daily supply of crab grass seed, which is plentiful in my yard and was their favorite snack before today, I decided to go to Petco and buy some crickets and mealworms to see what they did. It started out slowly, then it was a total chick frenzy as they hunted the crickets or competed for space on top of the pile of mealworms. It was interesting to see my little Fayoumis, which is supposed to be a good forager, out do everyone in the bug eating contest. They're 2 1/2 weeks old. mealworms: See the fayoumis with the mahogany brown head eating them at a rate of about 1 every 2 seconds: Still figuring out to do about those moving crickets: First cricket, black chick on far left has it: Getting excited after small EE on right just swallowed cricket: That was the best $4.45 I ever spent!
