    She found it in the compost pile, then flailed it around until it was battered and broken, then basically ate it whole. Uhhh...is that okay? I guess it's kind of too late now, but...

    Kind of speechless.

    I know they're omnivores and all.

    I figured she would just kill it since it was moving. Not eat it afterwards...WHOLE no less!

    "I know they're omnivores and all."

    Chickens are like that.

    Haha. When I think of chickens being omnivores, I figure bugs and stuff.

    Oh well, one less thing eating the feed or garden. :)
