We finally got to purchase our little flock yesterday of 6 buff Orpington pullets, a few days old. I wanted to give them an enriching activity, after all, if a hen was raising them they would have a very active day learning to forage. So, at Petsmart, I found a super neat product for turtles called Fluker's Medley. It is dried mealworms, crickets, and tiny shrimp. I figured this would fit the bill. I was right. I handed a chick a mealworm and off she ran, playing keep away. We then sprinkled the medley in the shavings and girls went to town, foraging and scratching their little feet backward. Our neighbor brought his nearly 4 year old boy over, and Garrison would hold a bug/shrimp/worm and let a chick grab it and the chick would take it and run like mad trying to keep it to herself, successfully entertaining us all. The chicks ate some of their starter, drank water,and now with crops full are plump, happy, and sleeping.
