    I'm guessing it will go down soon, just make sure they have grit to help digesting the mealworms. Have fun on BYC! [​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC.

    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best

    I think they need to have a lot less mealworms.
