I started up a worm bin to have a source of protein for them in the winter. None of them will eat the worms!! What is it with these bird brains? Don't they know they are supposed to love worms? Only one of them would eat them, but he was one of the roos I sent to freezer camp. He would slurp them down. If the neighbors could have endured his crowing I would have kept him around to teach the ladies to eat them. I have offered them to the hens for months and they refuse them. Even when I keep them shut up in the coop with only their layer food. I gave up on the worms. They went to freezer camp as well. I dumped them out in my garden last week.
