    Anyone culturing black soldier flies in any quantity? They appear to be an good alternative to mealworm larvae as a live treat.

    I just started too, I'm trying to mix up what my girls eat. After 6 days I have several egg masses, and I'm pretty sure I saw a couple small BSF larvae. Wet chicken mash sitting in the sun for 2 weeks works great, I get around a dozen adults a day. Only half they eggs though.
