Can chickens eat crawdads (crawfish)? I think it would be hilarious to watch! I could run a net through our irrigation ditches and collect at least 20 at a time! I just wouldn't normally because why bother? However, if my chikie-poos could eat them, I'd collect a bunch. Would I have to kill the crawdad first? I'd probably have to at least remove the claws right? How often could I feed them crawdads?
