    Anybody else enjoy the bane of most gardeners, the japanese beetle? Our chickens DEVOUR THEM like maniacs. Actually look forward to the season of these, around July.

    I love watching chickens eat bugs. Often I dig in the ground just so that the chickens can eat the worms I dig up. Now the chickens know that shovels= yummyness.

    beautiful chickens! The Japanese beetles also love my Rose of Sharon shrubs, and for the last several years they have practically decimated my red plum trees... [​IMG]

    That is too funny! [​IMG] My birds associate all large tools with digging and buggy treats. We had to laugh today when my roos came running TOWARD the axe. Fortunately the axe is only used for cutting down trees around here.
