Another neighbor, also a grower for a major poultry company that shall remain nameless (starts with a T), stopped by to buy some eggs this evening. DH was telling her about all the fun that goes on when I feed my chicks crickets. She told us that the Big T insist that their growers do everything possible to eradicate crickets on their property and especially in the chicken houses. The Big T says that crickets will give your chickens diseases. Apparently I have the world's healthiest disease-ridden chicks because they live for their daily crickets. Still can't get my head around it. Feeding chickens food that comes natural to them is not good for them. Just thought I'd share.
