    My chickens have learned the trick to catching them. At first they weren't watching them all the way through. Now they watch & run like crazy to catch em. I mean these chickens are getting down right mean over the grasshoppers.I love watching them fight over them. Grasshoppers must taste like fillet mignon.

    In the spring my chickens only wanted to scratch in the flower beds. Once summer started all they do is hunt for grasshoppers.

    I knew my chickens were chasing/eating grasshoppers...

    But nothing prepared me for seeing my 2 week olds that are out with the rest of the flock and their surrogate moms to be running around with grasshoppers in their mouths that were half their size [​IMG]
