Hi! New to this forum, raising hens and now meal worms!!

    I've had a small flock now for almost 1 year. I have 5 girls, and 1 Rooster (HANK)
    I've decided to raise meal worms for them (and my backyard birds during the cold months).
    So, Amy from West Knoll Farm has got me started, and suggested I check into this forum as a great place to learn along the way.

    Now, I have my worms, and I'm reading perhaps I should have froze my bran for a few days before putting the worm in it?
    Help please. thanks, Mimi

    Hi Mimi,

    Sorry I can't help with your question, but welcome to by:frowc

    I'm sure another member will be along soon to help you out. What members don't know about chickens is not worth knowing! :D

    All the best

    Agree with Yorkshire Coop - check out the meal worm threads. I find using the search box usually gets info in a hurry. Welcome to Backyard chickens.
