Am wanting to put a compost heap in chicken pen and "seed" it with crickets and nightcrawlers. Escapees would become food for my pullets. Thought I would put chicken wire over it to prevent birds from ripping it up and plundering the colony in one day. Anyone out there ever done that or heard of it? Great way to have a renewable food supply of fresh protein and really a superior food to store-bought stuff, just as fresh greens are.
