Release the hounds!

I set up this blog a while ago but I'm just adding something now for the first time. I wanted to upload these videos of my chicks digging in the dirt and eating grubs. They are so gluttonous that by the last video you can see their crops in the front of their chest distended from all the bugs they ate. I now it sounds gross but it's actually cute.

I also am still impressed that the mother hen does her job so well. She digs around until she finds something and then calls the chicks over. I don't think she kept anything for herself.

If you make it to the last video you can see each of the chicks eat at least one big fat grub.
