guinea hens vs. grasshoppers

San Marcos, TX(Zone 8b)

Has anyone used them to control the grasshopper population around crops. I plan on getting about eight hens for a three acre fenced in orchard. There were a few hundred thousand grasshoppers last year before I planted. They were the really big ones too. I also plan on spraying hot pepper spray on the leaves as well.
