Raising meal worms for chicken feed
While I was finishing up the ditch digging
project I noticed a significant population of grubs, which got me
to thinking about the possibility of raising meal worms for a chicken
As usual the internet has quite a lot to say on the subject of meal worms, but I
found the Sialis
website and all was made clear.
It seems like a bit more work than raising worms, but once you read the
you'll feel like an expert.
You should be ready to wait around 3 months for your first harvest, and
most folks recommend a group of 1000 to get started, which can be had
for around 20 bucks. This could be an excellent way to raise the
quality of your eggs if your hens live in a coop and compete with a
large flock for juicy insect snacks. Stay tuned to see if I can figure
out a way to cut back on our store bought chicken feed with the help of
a well planned insect community.
