My chickens are only 10 weeks old, and they don't have much experience when it comes to hunting insects in their run. My Buff Orpington attempted to peck a bee today, and most likely would have pecked and eaten it if I didn't move her away from where it had unwisely landed on the ground in her run. What happens if a chicken pecks or eats a bee? Will it sting them, or will the venom hurt them? Do they know not to eat bees or other insects that may sting instinctively? (it appears not...) What about spiders who may have venom?
