I swear, every time I go check on the 4 bantam chicks, they are pecking at each other's toes! Why?
because they think it's food. Like a bug or worms. Chickens are silly. Little bird brains!
Ha ha, silly chickens! I've noticed they really go after the D'uccle, maybe it's the feathers?
Because they're there.
Chicks have no way to check things out without pecking at 'em. No hands, no fingers. They ARE intensely curious.
Yup. They look like meal worms.
Quote:I was going to say the same thing lol they do look like meal worms! I took some out to my momma and her chicks...they do go nuts over those.
If you don't have it already, a RED heat lamp sometimes prevents them pecking at each other.
Mine still try with a red light, but quickly grow bored when the chickie being pecked chirps and runs away.
