June bug in a bucket

june bug in a bucket

I found a June Bug in a bucket and thought the chickens might want it.

They seemed to enjoy watching it bounce around, but could'nt quite reach the bottom of the 2 gallon bucket.

The bug was snatched up by what I assume is the quickest hen when I dumped it.

Mine would have loved it for sure. On the other hand, the gross potato bugs had them staring in uncertainty, when i gathered a whole jar lid full of them and set it in the chicken fence. It wasnt until I offered them one at a time that the hens finally decided they were (sort of)edible.
