I'm new to this whole chicken thing and I see people posting about deliberately growing mealworms. I've always tried to avoid the little creatures, though I realize my girls' may feel differently on the subject. I'm just wondering if I'll be depriving them if I don't go down that path? I have 6 black sex-link hens and this is their first winter too. Here's a picture of one of my hens checking out the strange white stuff for the very first time. Thanks in advance!
