We use a mix of wheat and oat bran... can also use oatmeal and I think Sally uses chick starter? Fill bins about 1/3 or so with that, then place crumpled up newspaper on top and add a couple of wet paper towels. Cut up carrots or apple slices and lay under the paper also.
Takes about a month to start seeing changes, within about 6 wks you should notice tiny worms, within 8-10 wks you will be in good shape. Ours that you saw are both about 10 months.
Edit to correct stupid word mixes... should know better than to try to type comprehensive thoughts when I haven't slept in 22 hrs, getting tired.
