Why not feed them to your chickens now or continue to let them breed so you have enough to keep breeding and feed throught the whole year?
Because they free range and they have all the bugs they can find. I do use the mealworms if I need them back to the coop before they're ready. They come running when they think worms are being offered
I'm doing this because I feel bad that they don't have bugs in the winter with all the snow and freezing temps..... they LOVE bugs (even stink bugs)... and cucumbers, and kale, and lettuce, and cheese, and yogurt, and melon, and celery leaves, and pumpkin inners.......
I would put some on craigslist..like 2000 for $10..I bet you would sell them!
