I was just thinking about in Egypt when Plagues of Locusts came, how fun that would be for the chickens. I know that recently the grasshoppers have gotten really bad in our area, they killed our lemon tree. My friend said that he doesn't worry about locusts, because he has a Free-range flock. I haven't noticed them too bad anymore. My chickens usually stay in the run area though. But ever so often a grasshopper will come leaping in the wrong direction, and he has just started a fatal game of Keep-away for the chickens.
