I played in the mud today, and I dug for worms. I don’t know if I have ever done that in my entire life. Sure, I was a bit of a Tom boy growing up, but I made mud pies. I never dug for worms.

So why now?

Chick food.

No, it’s not some new diet plan. Eating worms, at least to my knowledge, won’t help you lose weight. They might have lots of protein and nutrients flowing through them, but unless my life depends on it, I’m not going to try one.

I’ve got 22 chicks living with me. Chickens that is. Six of them are abut the size of a mango. They are pretty darn cute. We supplement their food with worms, and they love them!

Never in my life would I have thought I would have chickens, or 22 chickens for that matter. I’m more of a cat person, but the daughter and the boyfriend decided we needed chickens.

Soon (like 6 months or more) they will start laying eggs. I can’t wait!!
