Trapping crayfish for chickens

how to make a do it yourself crayfish trap

Do you have a creek or river
within walking distance from your chicken coop?

I just found out one of our chickens
likes to eat mature crayfish
. My next thought was to get
curious about how easy it might be to harvest them from our creek?

The traps are easy to make,
and some people even use plastic soda or juice bottles. Dead fish seem
to make good bait and it helps if it’s attached near the top.

My experiment will be to see
how much time and effort it takes to harvest this new source of protien
for our flock. Image credit goes to
