Can chickens eat dragonfly larvae? Was skimming our pond and a lot were on the leaves... big ugly bugs
Yes dragonfly larvae are edible by all birds. Leave them alone and allow them to mature into dragonflies. They are awesome predators of unwanted insect pests.

What kind of 'pond'?
Curious why'd you'd skim it.
Cause my parents told me to xD Idk either, the back one has fish in it, so it needs skimming as the decaying leaves release toxic chemicals or gases etc. The front pond is just a nature pond, so it doesn't need skimming, but no arguing with parents! It's about 10ft diameter, concrete sides, but it is a nature pond, newts and stuff in there, water lilies ect.
