I turned my ladies out in a pasture I was mowing yesterday. There were bugs and crickets everywhere. I don't think they actually ate many, there were running from one to the other, then they would spy another and off they would go. They had a field day. They must have gained a pound each. They even stay out longer than normal. I finally had to gather up two and put them in the coop. I think they would have stayed at the buffet line all night. They loved the mowed clover too.
