On our way home from town this afternoon we stopped by a bait shop owned by a friend of my stepdaughters. I wanted to buy some mealworms for my big hens and the babies. The guy was sold out of mealworms, but he gave me a box of 100+ crickets, free of charge. Not sure how to get them out of the box, I just reached in and grabbed a handful for my big girls. Then I just opened the front door and dumped all the remaining crickets out on the screened porch, where all the chicks reside (supposed to be in their brooder, but they don't believe in that). It's like a scene from Jurassic Park on the porch right now and DH is not amused. It's one thing to have 32 chicks destroying your screened porch, it's another to have them running around playing cricket rugby too.
