For good reason. He sits by the broody hens and disturbs them constantly.

Parents would probably rather he find something productive to do than sit and watch eggs all day - which, I might add, is neither productive nor necessary.
Yes I am finding with my busy life it is the perfect hobby , just check the temp and humidity once a day. I am done. The broody hen is even easier. Just check that she has food and water once day. Done.

I like oysters too, fried or fresh on the half shell with a dab of some very hot horseradish.

The ones that survived were 2 weeks old, the ones that died were 1 week old.  Born 4/16 - 4/18.   No lights in the coop, just their heat plate.  I don't think I had it low enough for the little babies.  They had a smaller heat plate in the inside brooder.  I do have a heat lamp I was going to run inside the whole coop - I had cleaned and moved the heat plate away from the Easter hatch.  They were not using it anymore,so I thought the warmer room would help.  But the only power in the coop so far is from a REALLY long power cord, with a 3 way plug on the end.  That is being used for the 3 heat plates.  I thought they would be warm enough with just each other (33 of them) and the heat plate, but sadly I was wrong.     
Yeah, as good as the heat plates are, there are definitely issues with the height. I find I have to raise them every 2 or 3 days. Multi age chicks can't use them unless the environment is warm.

My dad, sister and I had an earthworm farm. For human consumption, you had to put them on a bed of cornmeal to clean them out.

In some countries they have a special breed of dog for human consumption.

My coop fairy is an animal lover but has eaten dog, cat and guinea pig.

Balut

Snail

Cricket

Grasshopper

Locust

Earthworms

Mealworms

Oyster?
Even though they're bottom feeders, I'd do the snails and oysters first, just cause I already have.
Yeah I would do oysters and crickets first probably.
