Freeze-frame bonus trophy for this one definitely has to go to the chicken menacingly holding a fork in panel 5.

No Spudventures this week due to work conflicts and whatnot. Look, it's summer, everyone's sweaty and overworking and tired. Tabletop RPGs are hard to sustain.

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: January 27th, 2023.

Something to note, much like horses, chickens will eat meat if they manage to catch it. They will not go out of their way for it, but they will not stop eating just because they grabbed, say, a mouse in place of a seed.

What a lot of people fail to consider is a number of herbivores are opportunistic carnivores. Meaning if they happen to get a source of proteins as they eat, then they will eat that too. There have been instances were ive seen baby chicks wander too close to grazing horses, only for the horse to eat the chick too.

I've seen horses sneak up on a bird or a mouse and stomp it dead so they can eat it. The first few times it was creepy to witness because most people don't see that happen. XD

But I think it's worse here, because we see a bunch of critters banding together to take down a larger animal to cook.

I've been told that if you have a rat problem in your chicken coop, you just need to give the chickens a taste of rat and your problem will go away

That is both horrifying and fascinating. I love these facts about supposed "herbivores."

As some whom has hand raised chickens most of their life, I must say it tickles me that people think chickens are herbivorous... They're omnivorous, with a PREFERENCE for meat... Usually grubs, worms, beetles,larva and grasshoppers... They will also slurp up old chili, taco meat, and pick meaty bits off bones...

They will also shank a bitch for leftover grated cheese, even if it's a little green...

As a little squirt I remember using a net made out if a stick, a plastic grocery bag, and a coat hanger to catch grasshoppers to feed them... When they saw the net they'd start following me at a distance waiting... It's why I scoff when people call them dumb.

Saw a documentary on elephants and/or weaver birds where the elephants just reached up into the tree and ate the whole nest, chick, eggs, twigs and all. It was pretty neat. Well, not for the weaver birds I guess.

What I wonder is a chicken eating a cow

They will totally go out of their way, as seen here: https://youtu.be/OlMz4TYmBBY

There are some concerning implications that several of those critters are willing to eat horsemeat, which is outside their usual diet pattern. How badly did Rainbow roll those Animal Handling checks? XD

At a guess, so badly every dice bag in the room suddenly disgorged their contents, all of which rolled a 1.

LoL, that is a mental visual that will stay with me all day. XD

Getting back to weather control? Good.

Living long enough to get back to weather control? A little more important.

RD has her priorities right.
