birds eating pests.

John, I have chickens.  If I gather 200 snails in a bucket  and dump them all 
in the chicken pen at once, the chickens eat a few  and quit.  If I sit down 
and throw them into the chicken pen one at a time,  they run and fight over 
each one and will eat all 200.
The first time I bought fly predators and dumped them into the chicken pen,  
they  promptly ate everyone of them within minutes.  Well, I can  learn.  Now 
I wait until nightfall, put the predators around the coup in  the dark, put 
them under boards, etc and hopefully I am not just wasting money.
