I live in Maryland, and our state is pretty much infested with stinkbugs in the fall and winter. I'm not kidding. I could probably count hundreds just on our porch, let alone the yard, shed, and coop. They're EVERYWHERE. It's discusting. It is the Asian Stinkbug, which are very unintelligent creatures, whom always seem to fly at you, instead of AWAY from you when they are scarred. ***DUMB BUGS!** Anyway, if you touch them they spray you with a chemical from their glands, and it STINKS. ANYWAYS, a few of my chickens LOVE these things and eat them whenever they can catch one. Are they safe for a chicken to eat? I would assume they spray the chemical inside the chickens mouth in self defense, which I'm hoping isn't harmful to the chickens.
