My chickens keep the grasshoppers down as do the turkeys.
Guineafowl will also do this.
I like the Muscovy idea, they eat insects or animal protein they can catch. I remember a large male with a chipmunk tail hanging from its mouth.
Grasshopper tend to have a breeding cycle you just need to time your poultry around their life cycle.

I would think that removal of the word entirely might not represent the situation better than it's presence. More likely, the term poly-friendly or something similar is probably the most accurate word for the situation. Anyone there must at least accept without complaint or judgement that some of the members share a non-monogamous relationship, but are not themselves required to be a part of it. I would agree that the current wording (before explanation at least) implies that new members would be expected to participate as part of a poly household.
