    There are quite a few insects that people raise to feed their chickens, they can eat almost any kind. Roaches, crickets, earthworms, fly maggots, black soldier fly larve etc ... an article from The Poultry site on insects used in animal feed in various places ... http://www.thepoultrysite.com/articles/2858/insects-as-animal-feeds
