I was reading some posts on here some time ago about farming mealworms for chickens. I finally decided to try it. We went to our local feed store (that has mealworms) and he said he made a mistake in how he was raising the mealworms and said he could only offer 50 mealworms. He did give me some pupae which was nice. Anyway, when we got home I put some microwaved (to kill mites) oatmeal in two containers, separated the pupae and the mealworms, and put some potato in there. They were squirming for a while and after a few hours they started just laying there. Are they dead? Some of them are still moving and one of them turned into a pupa an hour ago (gross) but I think the rest of them are dead. What could have happened?
