    This has got to be by far the funniest thing I have ever seen. They go crazy for mealworms! Running around with a worm hanging out peeping "look what I got!" [​IMG]

    They're only 4 days old, so this was their first of many [​IMG]

    LOL...they sure do love them. When we first got our birds they wouldn't come near us. They were very skiddish and fearful of humans. So after a couple of days my husband brought home some meal worms after work. We started by tossing them near the chickens (who eagerly gobbled them up) and slowly threw them a little closer to us each time. Within 30 minutes they were eating them out of our hands and wouldn't go away! We've all been best friends ever since!
