    my darlins are almost 4 wks old & in the coop (with heat @ night). i bought 12 crickets @ the feed store today. WOW! they went after those things like there was no tomorrow. nobody had to show them what to do with a cricket.

    I can wait to try this with our new little ones. They already will chase little reflections of light around, can't imagine how cute they'll be chasing crickets!
