China’s northwest region of Xinjiang is using chickens to battle incoming locust swarms. Officials say one chicken can catch over 600 locusts a day and can cover 1.2 acres of grassland. The country is predicting higher than normal incidents of locust swarms for Xinjiang this year. Back in 2000, China amassed a 700,000-strong army of chickens and ducks for the same purpose.
