Ok, I was hunting for worms for the kids thinking, "there has to be a better way" I have friends who will give me worms to compost with and I have compost makings..... what I need now are worm composter designs. Are you composting with worms? Show me your set up please!! Descriptions of how to construct what you use will earn extra points of appreciation. I will thank you, my chickies will thank you. Original Post below ************************* My first hatch of chicks are 4 1/2 weeks old. I gave them some grit for a treat this morning, then I went out and dug them up worms. I'm trying to hand feed them treats now because they still act like they hate me. They will get the hang of it, but coop life is coming soon and I need them to be willing to come close or follow me for treats (and locking back up in the coop, etc.) It's been blazing hot here lately and I had a terrible time finding worms. Finally found a moist spot with a few in it. Any hints on finding them worms? Are they more prone to be in moist beds? So I need to water the day before I want to find them? Is anyone raising worms for them? They are completely hilarious grabbing and running with the worms. My 2 day old chicks that hatched over the weekend are climbing all over my hand when I feed them crumbles. They come to my hand as soon as its in the brooder. Very different little chickies I've got in the 2 hatches.
