    Ok, confess....who hunts bugs with their chickens? [​IMG] I do!

    It all started when I brought home 2 young chicks. I had them isolated from the others & had them locked in a coop & since they were very young, I would cut greens & bring them bugs.

    When I finally let them out of the coop, they would follow me around so I started picking up my plant pots & other yard ornaments so they could get bugs. To this day, I only hunt bugs with the pullet. When she sees me out by the flower pots she runs towards me hoping to find some bugs.

    We have actually made a habit of moving pots & rocks for her morning & evening.....[​IMG] even the DH is doing it [​IMG]

    The things people do for their chickens!

    I hunt bugs alot but not just for my chickens. I also have a leopard gecko, a florida bark scorpion and a emperor scorpion. So my days are spent bug hunting.

    Well, I hunt bugs FOR our oldest chick! It gets all excited every time I come close to the brooder because it thinks I have another box elder bug.[​IMG]
    I can see me doing this as the chicks get older.
