    Does anyone know a good online source for meal worms? I use them when a chicken is looking too thin or getting over being sick. I have about 50 chickens, so this comes up more than I would like. We had some bad mites this year and even though they were dusted regularly, they ended up not eating because they were uncomfortable. Luckily I didn't loose any. A vet tech recommended meal worms to get their strength up because they have a lot of protein. I'm spending SO much money on meal worms at Petco!

    1) Does anyone know a good online source to buy them?

    2) Soon I want to start farming meal worms, too. Does anyone know a good resource to learn to do this?

    Thanks so much!!!!!!
