    Just wanted to say thanks to whoever suggested buying crickets. I went to Petsmart today and bought a bunch. The salesman only charged me $1 for about 30 assorted sized ones.

    My 3 week old chicks had a grand time playing and eating them. I was especially pleased that my chick witht the crooked toes once she got one of the big ones was able to be the one to get them. I put them in a couple at a time. And we have quite a few left for tomorrow.

    Again thanks a bunch. [​IMG]

    Isnt it fun to watch them do what comes naturally? I just love to give my babies "treats" and watch the mayhem!

    My husband says I am morbid because I get so tickled watching baby chicks chase around and snatch crickets from one another like a game of tag.
