I've noticed a big decrease in the amount of bugs (including ticks) since we got our chickens. We have an influx of boxelder bugs. I haven't seen the chickens eat any of the boxelder bugs up by our house, but man, it would be great if the chickens developed a taste for them. My guess is that the boxelder bugs are too stinky even for the chickens. Do you have any local bugs that your chickens really help with? What bugs WON'T they eat?
