No, why you ask? He was my Goober boy, who's gonna be used for my Project Wheaten Crele Orpingtons.
My house has. So. Many. Mosquitos.
*dies*
and I dont mean at dusk and nighttime. I mean every single second of every single day. I've even gotten bitten WHILE it was raining.
please send your chicken super race to save me.

I watched one of my chicks zero in on an ant, study it, pounce, peck, spit it out and shake it's head in disgust at the taste ... I was so disappointed. 🤣

Most ants are acidic; some actually smell vinegary if you crush them. Some chickens like it, most don't. I like pickle juice with a splash of everclear. My wife thinks it's disgusting and sticks with Dr Pepper. Sounds like OP has at least one chick with good taste.
