Playing Toss the Worm

Fun ensued when I threw a skinny but long enough worm into a bunch of hens on a hot day.  It got thrown about several times between hens.  The first (early bird) did not get the worm in the end, nor did the ones pictured.

I guess they were in the mood for something else.
Mary MacADNski: They loved it but only one gets the worm.

Bon appétit les poules !
Mary MacADNski: They do love a good worm.
How fun! I'm glad you caught them in the act!
Mary MacADNski: They always toss them up to eat them so they are usually stolen. It can go on and on.

A lot of clucking and tugging, I should think.
Mary MacADNski: Tossing and stealing is the major activity, over and over. They always toss them to eat them, thus they get stolen.

Were they trying to work out what to do with something alive? I can't imagine hens indecisive over food!
Mary MacADNski: A hen tosses a worm up to eat it. It gets stolen. That hen tosses it into the air above her head to eat it so it gets stolen. It can go on and on.
Did they have to wait for the music to stop?
Mary MacADNski: I think they would like it.
Competition...smile
Mary MacADNski: It was funny to watch.
