    Oh, yeah. Chickens like their beetle bugs.
    I had a friend that wired up a 5' diameter fan to turn real slow and hung a windsock bag behind it. The fan would just gulp down passing insects, and every morning he'd have a pound or two for the chickens. He had the happiest flock in eleven counties.

    I remember the first time I found one of those Japanese Beetle grubs in the garden. EEeewwwww. I dug it up with my trowel and flung it to one of the girls (they were never far away back then) and then they all came running. It kept them busy for quite awhile. One would run away with it, then the others would chase, then someone else would get hold of it and then others would chase.

    Makes you wonder, if the first chicken would just keep quiet, and then carry her prize away she wouldn't have to share!!
