    i went in to tuck my babies in tighter for the night when i saw it was going to be a low of 51. i step inside the hoop house where their brooder is & hear chaos. they're chirping & running around like mad chicks. then i see the june bugs in their beaks.
    they're supposed to be going down for a good nights sleep & instead they're having a party.

    lol I just dug up a bunch of june bugs while removing some stumps. Boy the chicks went crazy here too lol. It was funny watching a silkie running with a june bug while a a flock of 23 other chicks ran after .

    Very cute stories! I wish I had more chickens, so I could see that. At one times, the max we've had was four, doesn't make for a very phenomenal chase. :p
