I think that might be true because even with live worms, if they are paralyzed from digging them up they are nervous to go for them but eventually one does. Mine absolutely LOVE this stuff though. And they have all sorts of other kinds too.
another thing my girls love is cracked corn and also BOSS (black oil sunflower seeds) but especially cracked corn. Should be limited though and more of a cold weather treat but sometimes I cave as they love it so. And for some reason, they LOVE bread. And I recently discovered they love broccoli and kale too. Kale they rip to shreds, broccoli they pull all the little heads off. So if they party mix doesn't work (it shoudl though
) maybe try one of those, of course with chick grit.

We have a leash law in our county where if your dog is outside of a fence they must be on a leash. She will come out and film with her phone if anyone has their dog outside off leash, so I know there would be no possibility at all of keeping a rooster with her around.
Wow that is dreadful! Does she have nothing better to do with her life? Probably best to not start fights but I would honestly write an anonymous letter and ask her that lol
