Am wanting to raise night-crawlers and crickets within my chicken pen. Escapees would become food for girls, fresh protein. Figured to put compost pile in pen, and "seed" it with nightcrawlers and crickets. Would have chicken wire over it to keep birds from ripping it up and plundering the colony in one day. Anyone out there ever done that or heard of it? Should be a great way to reduce feed bill while providing renewable and superior food supply, it seems to me.
