    Let's get it!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My 8 week old chicks go CRAZY when a fly gets in the coop. I don't they have the slightest chance catching it, but they sure try! All other treats can wait while they are hunting.

    Is that normal chicken behavior, or are they just being young and playful(/dumb)?

    That's completely normal - they're trying to eat them!
