    Last night I threw a grass hopper into my 6'x10' tractor with 65 meaties that are 2 weeks old. A few of them began to play "chase the one with the grasshopper in it's mouth." It was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. They ran around the whole tractor as fast as could they could. The one that got it intially never let it go. My three year old and I watched and laughed at them for at least ten minutes. I never did see who ended up with it. NOW THAT'S CHEAP ENTERTAINMENT!

    I Always Say 'poor Grasshopper' When We Do It But We Do It All The Time! So Great To Watch! Gives The Birds Something To Do As Well. Lol [​IMG]

    When mine were young they would all go for the same piece of bread. One would grab it & all he others would chase it for the longest time. All the other briads of chickens would stay somewhere close to the bread pile & chow down but it took the meaties forever to learn that they got more to eat if tey quit trying to take it from each other.
