    Well I have been having fun watching my 2 & 3 week old chicks grow and explore but today while preparing my Bearded Dragons supper I got to wondering what the chicks would do with some of his crickets.....so I dropped about 6 crickets in with the chicks, only one was brave enough to check them out and after eating 5 of them the others all decided she may have something good....she caught the last one and then the chase was on the other 12 chicks started running to get the last little cricket from her...what a site I tossed in another dozen and they all had a blast hunting the lil buggers....It was so funny to watch them they all seemed to really enjoy them.

    Nothin better than chicken TV! When they get older, toss a whole tomato in the coop and watch chicken rugby!

    I have my two chicks in the house even though they are a few months old. [​IMG] yeah I know.. [​IMG] I still have to build a coop and haven't decided on what I want yet. I do have a run that they play in outside side. Anyway, its raining like crazy the last two days and they are inside. Today I ended up with a bunch of flies in here. [​IMG] So after smacking a few with the fly swatter I threw them in with the chickens. They went nuts.. now they have a fit when they see me grab the fly swatter. they also LOVE cheese and corn. [​IMG] I had some mixed veggies and they picked out all the corn before they even would even taste anything else. When they hear the fridge open in the other room they holler to let me know they want
    cheese. [​IMG]
