    My one week old chick caught a stink bug that flew into the brooder and ate it! [​IMG] She is still alive!! [​IMG] LOL It was the funniest thing. The stink bug landed on the floor of the brooder and she saw it and grabbed it and proceeded to run from the other 18 girls as they chased her trying to get her prize! [​IMG] LOL Hilarious! Finally, the other girlies realized they weren't getting that bug and left her alone. I guess it was jumping around in her beak and she beat her beak on the ground a few times to kill it and then just swallowed it! [​IMG] Then she ran to the water and drank! [​IMG] LOL I told the DH that we needed to watch her for the next day or so in case it made her sick. [​IMG] It's been over 24 hrs and she is doing great! [​IMG] I haven't named them all yet, but I might name her Stinky...any thoughts??

    You could also call her Bugsy! That is so funny! I love to watch the chase! When one chick gets something and the others realize and start the hot pursuit. So cute!
