Chickens are coming back. I'm seeing more and more
articles about raising chickens - in your back yard, in your house! I know if I raisedchickens they would all be pets, all have names and nobody would be eaten.
So what would be the use of having them?
Grasshoppers! That's why. I was talking to a lady the other day at
the eye doctors and she said she keeps chickens and never
has a grasshopper problem. She said it's the funniest thing to watch them
chasing a grasshopper down. We've had some years where we've had
a nasty grasshopper problem, they eat everything - even the paint on
your porch. I guess, though, I'll settle for the wild turkeys
that roam our neighborhood. Maybe they catch grasshoppers, too!
