Just a quick ? Chickens CAN eat earthworms...right? I hope so, because with all the rain we've had, they are out in numbers, and I planned on letting the chicks out soon as its warm enough. My chickens are sooo into bugs and crawly things that they WILL find them and eat them! Do I need to have the kids go out and collect them all so the chicks dont eat them, or is it ok? I thought I read that earthworms carry something, but I dont remember what.
