    I was out in the barn feeding everyone yesterday when I started hearing the most incredible amount of commotion coming from the brooder. I went in there, and I had one little chick who had gotten herself a june bug. The others were going INSANE chasing her around. It was the funniest thing I've ever seen. I was laughing out loud.

    Different ones were able to snatch it, then another one would snatch it, and they'd go hide in the corner with it. It was so dang funny - I just had to share!

    Isn't that fun??? [​IMG] Mine love to play Keep-Away, or Chicken Football. Their favorite thing to play with is a feather! I don't think they're picking at each other, but sometimes one will flap it's wings and a loose feather pops out, and they all run after it and the games begin! [​IMG]

    My husband loves to give them meal worms one at a time and watch the commotion.

  7. Every time one of the chickies gets a worm all they end up with is what they had in their mouth LOL. The rest have picked on it in a full throttle run until that all that is left. It really is hilarious.
