    my chickens hunted worms and dust bathed while i sprayed bees with hornet killer as they held a nest in the corner of the fenced in run, i got stung once and my chickens ate more bugs and grass in one hour than the bees i killed and i had to spray many yellow jackets. oh my gosh my birds have fun free ranging the yard.

    It is hilarious to watch my chickens chase bumble bees.

    Your chickens aren't going to be able to eat the bees you poisoned are they?
