Yuck!

My girls caught my attention this morning when they were overly excited by a tree in the back yard.  I soon discovered what all the fuss was about...

There were tons of cicadas in various stages of development on the tree...*shiver*  Here is one that is just emerging from it's old skin...

They are white when they first come out of their old skin.

Here is a bunch of the skins at the bottom of the tree.

The chickens were feasting on the smorgasbord of cicadas.  They were happy as clams! All I can say is...YUCK!
