Feeding crawfish to poultry

Lucy looking at a crawdad or crayfish

Will a chicken eat a crawdad?

That depends...I've seen some chickens run away after being pinched, but today I gave one to our White Leghorn and she went crazy for it.

We might think about breeding them for chicken food in the future or figure out a way to trap them from our wild population.

crawfish traps are pretty easy to make - make a cylinder of hardware cloth and add two inward pointed cones for the ends. just zip tie it together and your in business.
