    I am wanting to feed my chickens live mealworms. I warned to get the pros and cons of this. Does anyone here raise mealworms? If so how had is it? Where did you get them? Does anyone here sell them?

    I got mine from Rainbow Meal worms off ebay. I have them setup as a farm.
    Dead easy to raise the worms them selfs...SOOO Many photos have been taken on this web page I would do a search, there is a big meal worm thread!
    Your chickens will LOVE them! If I open my lid or call them, they come running for them.
    Only con is that your chickens will be spoiled lil brats[​IMG][​IMG]

    Anywhere that has or sells reptile supplies will have them - I get mine at petsmart. My girls will jump 2 feet straight up to grab one out of my fingers.
