Folks along the east-coast will know what I am talking about. While we don't have nearly as many as last year, they seem to be congregating around the coop where the brooder is, probably because it is nice and warm in there. I have no easy way of keeping them out. Questions: 1. Will they harm 1 week old chicks? I don't see why, but thought I'd ask. Any risk of diseases that they may carry? 2. I found a couple hiding out in the feed. Is this a problem? I scooped them out, very easy to do, but I can't prevent them from coming in. 3. When will my peeps start taking a liking to them and EAT them? For now they just seem to be puzzled by them and a little afraid (the chicks are almost 1 week old). Should I try feeding a dead one to them to see if they will start eating the live ones? Enough free protein to last until they're grown! Since I've fed them some mealworms (with great success!) I am offering them chick grit so I'm not too worried about them eating other things than their starter (and they're eating plenty of that too!). 4. Do you do anything about stinkbugs or do you just leave them be?
