  • This time Mike gets to sex some Chicks!

    This time Mike is at a chicken farm to sex some chicks. He makes the poo fly out of the chicks be hind to see if it is a Hen or a Roaster. Mike has a lot of fun and I also learnd that you need to buy 25 chicks to have them sent by mail. They also dont need food for the 1st 3 days of life or 72 hrs. This was one of the very 1st eposaid of this show I saw and I now LOVE this show. It is fun to see and you also learn from this show. All of his shows are one hr long but every now and then he does one that is two hrs long. Over all it is a great show that does not get old and he gets very dirty most of the time. I hope you get to see this show some time soon!moreless
