    I went to the bait shop to get some crickets, when I came back, I found a wasp behind my blinds. I dumped it in the brooder, and the chicks went crazy for it (as usual) ,but then i heard a really loud chirp. I think one of them got stung.

    is this a concern?[​IMG]

    If she's still alive no problem, if she's allergic it's too late by now.

    Hope she's ok.

    She's okay. Thanks for the information. As a reward, have a video of my dog trying to get them.



    That's my son talking, BTW

    cute, thanks.

    When the chickens are bigger you can train copper on a leash to be calm around them.
