    My husband and I find our chickens of course love meal worms, but they are expensive alive OR dead. We are wondering if anyone has attempted growing meal worms for their chickens? We would love to do it if it's possible.

    Any advice? Thanks!


    I just found the thread on how to grow your own meal worms! I have no idea how I missed that! Sorry! If anyone has any other advice on how to do it I'll take it! Thanks so much everyone! [​IMG]
