    I stopped at the CO-OP on my way home and checked out the chicks they had left. BTW they are golden comets. I think a couple of mine are as well. Anyway, I picked up a 1/4 tube of crickets and brought them home to my own chick babies. It was so much fun to watch them! One would grab a cricket and run around the brooder as if to say "MINE! I got it! NYAA! NYAA!" and the others would chase it. Then someone else would grab a cricket and it would start all over again! I laughed 'til I cried!

    lol I was wondering if I could give them crickets. I figured it would be hilarious.
