One day all of my girls started freaking out, then my rooster walked forward, and was like, "I'll save you all from that dangerous tomato!" Now I bet if I gave my chicks a tomato they would be like, oh yay something red and yummy we can peck at! It took a while for my hens to even eat the tomato. The rooster of course was the first one to pick up the dangerous object with his beak... Anyone else ever noticed that chicks can be braver, or smarter then their full grown chickens? Just wondering.
