    This critter I found this morning crawling about on feed bucket. My son was not interested in because it does not have legs. My birds do not seem to eat them but some snakes do. They are nasty to handle.

  2. That's a good sized slug. If the chickens don't eat it, I think your dog would like to play with Mr Sluggy, from the looks of the photo.

    They get to roughly double size of specimen shown around here but are not the sort that causes significant damage. The little black ones and snails are much more inclined to cause trouble in garden.
