    My wonderful little clucking balls of terror [​IMG] have been eating the blue insulation board that we placed around our basement foundation (most of it is buried but a little sticks above the ground) They seem to absolutely love it! I can't get them to stop and they have been doing it for awhile and the only side effect is they have insulation in their poop. Should I be worried? and why the h-e-double hockey sticks do they like eating it so much it is pretty much just fancy styro-foam.

    chickens LOVE styrofoam, they are complete addicts! Its not going to kill them, but its not very good for them either.
