Our weekday morning routine usually includes me preparing the chickens’ water and a “snack” of greens or fruit or occasionally 5-grain scratch which Oscar takes out to them. This morning I had put scrambled eggs and scratch ready to go on the counter.

I got 10 or 15 minutes down the road and got a text from Oscar with a picture of the snack that said, “All of these bugs came out of the corn.”

“All of these bugs seem to have come out of the corn”

Yep, the scratch had become infested with weevils!

He dispatched these quickly (and hopefully efficiently) and took the bin outside.

What a way to start the day. For him. I was glad it wasn’t me dealing with all those creepy crawlies. Even from 10 miles away that picture gave me the heebie-jeebies.
