I would like to grow my own meal worms as an occasional treat for our chickens and if I have extra sell them to local fisherman or others in my neighborhood with chickens.
I have been reading and reading about mealworms.
I have three questions for those of you who have been breeding mealworms.
1. Is a plastic bin 12 inch by 24 inch large enough for 5000 meal worms for start up?
2. Will I have enough meal worms to sell a few if I am planning on giving some to the chickens only on weekends?
3. I read somewhere about people developing allergies to meal worms. Has anyone experienced this? I am planning on keeping the bin in the corner of my kitchen but now I am not so sure.
Thanks for your answers.
