When life gives you lemons...

  1. So, I live on the west coast of Canada, and it is WET here, I mean, really wet. It's been raining a few days, and I was feeling bad for my little month old chickies today. Their run has flooded, it's got about 2 inches of water pooling in it. They have a pallet to stand on, and it's covered, they could also go into the dry coop to sit under the heat lamp if they get chilled, but I was still feeling badly for them while I was at work... Until I got home.

    I went to check in on them, and they were out and poking around in the water. As I looked closer, several of them had really full crops. Hmmm, not too much food gone.

    Then I looked down, and in the floating straw, there was tons of HUGE earth worms. The little chickens were in fact in chicken bliss, gorging on worms to their hearts content.

    EDITED: sorry guys wrong forum!

    That's when you have to remember animals aren't humans. What's unpleasant for us is a feast for them!
