...that I ENJOY watching my chicks eat worms? I had my husband bring home some night crawlers on Sunday. The chicks went crazy for them! You know in the old cartoons you would see 2 birds pulling on a single worm, the worm stretching? I saw that in REAL LIFE! And they way they pick them up and just RUN! This is entertainment at its finest! So, how often is it OK to feed them worms? They are outside for most of the day. They are eating whatever they find in the compost pile. But none are as fun to watch as the worms.
