Menage a Quatre

On removing the bird feeder from the post this morning to refill it, I came across a menage a quatre of Earwigs looking very shifty.

Apparently the males have the most curved pincers, and the females almost straight ones, leading to the very tired looking earwig on the left being a male.

I did consider throwing them to the chickens, but instead decided to leave them be; the sparrows might get lucky then :)
