    Do your chickens like stink bugs?

    In MD, we get so many in the house, so we collect them and feed them to the chickens. They LOVE them! We are supposed to get infested with them in the spring, so we are very thankful our chickens will be helping us get rid of them.

    Yes they do... If it moves and they can catch it they eat it including scorpions, spiders, lizards, snakes, mice, etc.....

    YES! In fact, my chickens are about the only things that like them. I cannot wait for spring. They move indoors in the fall and bother me all winter. When the weather warms up, the nasty things go back outside and leave me to enjoy a little peace. C'mon SPRING!!!!!
