Another One Bites The Dust

5th one down!
My heart is sad. Why do I love having my chickens as much as I do? Someone told me that chickens eat scorpions. Well... maybe they have to "big" to take on the nasty beasts. Mine was not. The troubling thing is...I let the baby girls out to feast on bugs, watched her get stung, squack like mad, & fling the thing as far as she could.
2 hours later she was dead!
She was Ryan's
He will be sad in the morning.

I had NO idea! I thought they ate scorpions, too, is that a myth? I've seen them eat black widows...if that's any consolation. Sorry.
