Hi, I found a HowToDo mealworms here on the forum, and in May set up a container w/ ~20 worms. Now have had beetles and now am getting worms. LOTS of worms. The worms were in poultry mash, and I have been keeping apple-halves in for moisture. When should I give my free range birds some mealworms? They're getting bugs now, but still hungry for scratch. They did enjoy a watermelon recently too. I'm expecting them to wet their pants with excitment over these worms! )) Just not sure if I should save the worms for when it gets cold. ??? Also, it is a bad idea to just throw the mash with worms in them? It seems like this old mash is a bad idea. Wouldn't want any tummy aches.
