Well you live and learn. For all these years I've always believed that the stories about earwigs nipping were old wives tales but as of this morning, I know better.
I put my hand into the corn bucket to feed the chickens and I could feel something nipping me. I had a look at my hand and sure enough, there was an earwig with its claspers clamped firmly on me. It didn't hurt me of course but I definitely knew that it had a hold. Well I never ?

I hope the chicken enjoyed it

I knew they could nip, as can spiders, but am glad I've never had one do so.


All extra protein for the chickens
