    my kids want to have their friends over for a water balloon war. I am worried that if we don't get all the balloons picked up the chickens will might try to eat them. I know they make biodegradable balloons, maybe I could try those?

    We have had water balloon fights before, we just limit the area and try to pick everything up. So far no problems [​IMG]

    Update: Although my king roo Elvis will attack anything in my hand and anything that's red, he refused to go for the balloons, They were all scared of them.
