|This three drawer bin gives us a drawer for each stage |
1.) worms 2.) beetles 3.) eggs (as you can see, no eggs yet!)
|Sections with beetles and worms gets potato |
slices, carrots, etc. for moisture once a week.
For the bedding I am using is a mixture of oatmeal and wheat germ.
This process is so slow, but I think once they start laying eggs it should move faster.
I keep the container in my garage so that it never got cold during the winter. They need the warmth to grow.
The chickens go absolutely nuts when they see the container of meal worms coming toward them! The absolutely love it, and they are very high in protein!
