Every question I've ever had has been posted before so I've never had to create an account... But finally I'm stumped. I'm sure it's been asked but I can't quite find the answer. We are the proud parents of 5 chicks (2 orps, 1 brahma, 1 amercuna, 1 SLW) they're about 7-8 weeks. Today I bought crickets for the first time. i got 12, figuring everyone would get at least one if I threw them all into the brooder. My light brahma is by far the biggest one and caught and gulped down 2 right off the bat. The small orp ran around chirping loudly with a cricket in her mouth while others were trying to steal it from her. So my question... Is this a game of keep away? All in good fun? (You steal my cricket, I steal it back and we all run around like crazy?) Or should I be giving treats like that individually? Pull one chick out, give it a treat and put it back? This way it ensures that they all get treats? Anytime a chick caught a cricket, I took her out and let her eat in peace, then put her back. The big one isn't a "bully" but she loves to eat. My husband said to take her out and let the little ones have a chance. But even then there's a lot of frantic running and stealing. I feel like they're playing, but am not sure if im teaching them to steal from each other? As new parents, we're paranoid about teaching bad habits. Thank you!!
