    I recently opened the 10 week old hens and rooster to the run. Well they found all kinds of bugs including fire ants, and mud wasps. They have since dug about a foot down and have devoured everything in sight. Once the get a bit bigger I will let them free range. The will love the cord wood pile and sawdust end up starving the skunks and badgers yet.

    My dog also eats the wasps that buzz him. He nabs them in mid air and as they sting him he growls, but still bites at them and eats them anyways. [​IMG]
