So, so cute! My cousin and I killed a bunch of chicks for Grandma once by scaring them all into a corner. They suffocated. We were apx 3 and thought a sea of yellow furballs that parted in front of our litte feet was a hoot and a holler.

The dads, we heard later, had to pay the price for it. Sorry!
