    No worries. Yellow jackets are good. Me and my dog have both eaten
    them. Your chickies are fine.

    Ours have been eating yellow jackets and bumblebees.

    The ducks spit them out, but the chicks fight over them and eat them.

    I wish they'd eat them ALL! (The yellow jackets, not the bumblebees!)
