I have been watching a trio of adults (2 hens and 1 rooster) rearing two broods of chicks (4 weeks and 3 weeks of age). During early morning hours the group allows me walk along as they forage for crickets and grasshoppers. This morning I assisted the adults in catching items that the adults then took from me and gave to chicks. All three adults would take what I offered. Hens then gave items directly to their own chicks while rooster gave items to hens or directly to chicks. In all instances all items were consumed by chicks. Something became evident as I began to throw items on ground. The grasshoppers came in a range of colors (green, yellow and brown). The chickens either preferred green to brown or the former are easier to see. I also caught a Carolina grasshopper, which flashed its wings wing chicks tried to peck it resulting in chicks allowing it to escape.
