    and that disappeared so fast her sisters didn't even know what happened (just that it was very exciting!)

    If she is out and pecking at the dirt I'm guessing she will get what she needs to help her digest stuff like that? I've been bringing them out for 15 minutes or so at a time in the afternoons. Or is she too little and I should try to keep her away from eating that sort of thing?

    (newbie here, if you couldn't tell![​IMG])

    Thanks !!
