    anyone ever thought about mounting a bug zapper in the coop to give them a few extra snacks at night?

    I thought about it and actually bought one, but then took it back because the bugs just haven't been that bad. Still don't think it's a bad idea.

    I have automatic lights in my coop that attract a good amount of bugs, I think the bug zapper might replace one of them for the summer

    Good idea - as long as the constant TZZZZZZT noise dosen't make 'em twitch! [​IMG]

    Actually they might wind up being conditioned to expect a treat when they hear it. [​IMG]
