No, I'm not talking about MEAT here, I'm talking about the hens themselves! When I let them out to free-range each evening, they don't seem to have a clue how to catch grasshoppers or crickets. They do, however, snap them up when I catch the bugs and HAND them to Bo and The Production Reds!! I've installed a fan in their tractor. I'm building a chunnel for their safe (and SPACIOUS) exercise. I let them out everyday after the dogs go back inside, and when I don't, they squawk loud enough to remind me it's their turn! I wonder if I'm the only woman in Dallas with Spoiled Chickens? LOL!
