We're wondering if anybody has some experience raising either Canadian or European Earthworms as a food for their chickens? Every time we dig in the garden we get a flock of chickens who are waaay too excited to eat all the worms we unearth. Our garden is running out of worms so we're thinking of raising them to add back to the garden. I say Canadian or European worms because the red wigglers (garbage/composting worms) may not be as healthy for the birds plus they're surface dwelling and wouldn't last 5 minutes in our garden Our chickens LOVE worms and I did read one post that said worms can be bad for the chickens due to parasites or toxin build-up, but we have yet to see it. We don't use pesticides or chemicals on the garden so I think they're pretty clean. I know our chickens wont touch the box elder bugs but they will chase you all over the yard to get a worm from you So I imagine they know what's good for them. So - can anybody suggest a worm that is good to raise for chickens and for a healthy garden?
