When I got my baby chicks 2 months ago, I was excited not only about the prospect of having sweet pets, egg layers, and fertilizer producers all in one, but also about the pest control possibilities. I read somewhere that a guy emptied his yellow jacket traps (the ones with no poison in them) after all the wasps were long dead, and his hens went crazy for them. I personally have a phobia of wasps (not bees) and was excited about the possibility of my chickens eating a few of those in my backyard. Mine don't seem to like any of those stinging insects though. Several times a little honey bee has landed right in front of one of the pullets, she pecked at it, and then spit it out and walked away! Same with wasps and bumblebees. Mine don't want to eat them. Do chickens not normally eat wasps/bees? Another thing my chickens won't touch....slugs! I don't blame them---those sticky, slimy, disgusting things. They pecked on one before, but then spent a long time trying to wipe the slime off their beaks. Now they won't even go near slugs. They don't care much for worms either. They love mayflies, gnats, beetles, grasshoppers, spiders, and dragonflies. Do your chickens have bug dislikes or preferences?
