Ok, so I have been reading all of the posts on treats for chickens. I'm trying to train some Polish Lace chicks and a couple of peachicks to handfeed from me. What better treat than mealworms. So i read, read, read on mealworms. Everybody is raising them in their garage. I google mealworms and read and read. Sounds easy. So I go on ebay and see they cost around 10 bucks. I thinks why pay 10 dollars plus SH when I'm SURE I can get them local. I call my local pet store, they have them in stock, I run right over and buy a small cup. I have my pan and growing medium already to go. I get home, I put them in their pan and they don't move. I nudge them a couple of times and then it hits me. I got them out of a fridge with the blood worms. THEY WERE DEAD WHEN I BOUGHT THEM! Gosh, why does life have to be sooooo difficult. Like I couldn't have asked if the pet store sold LIVE mealworms. Ebay here I come. Darn chickens, I hope they know how much I like them.
