Due to recent heavy rains, the little buggers are swarming thick enough to show up on radar....

They were released from Area 51 to ward off the Facebook Invaders.

We had a bad grasshopper problem when we moved 8 years ago. I bought a dozen guineas. Since that time no further problem. I did shoot a rattlesnake in the driveway yesterday. First for a snake in 3 years. They chase off snakes also. Coyotes are hard on them but not as hard as they are on chickens.

I heard they have a Chicken Ranch in Vegas, so all they need to do is open those gates up and problem solved.

The Chicken Ranch is outside of Reno.
Betty's and Shari's were shut down years ago - and they were on Hwy 90 North of LV bymany miles - just over the Lincoln Co line.

Since it's Vegas what's the betting on it? Over under for running days, betting on exact end date, etc. I bet they're betting on it somewhere there.
