    Hello. I am wanting some to raise for my chickens. If you have got some you don't care to let go of, I'd appreciate it. Please let me know the price and how many you have. i can take as few or as many. Thanks.

    I can send a starter colony (includes pupae, worms, and bedding from my colony which should contain several eggs). It would probably have some bugs in it as well since there are so many in my colony right now.

    Here's a link to an auction I had up once for them. I've apparently deleted the picture since it won't enlarge, but you can find several videos on youtube on how to keep them. I keep mine in a rubbermaid tote with chick starter as the 'substrate'. They are very easy to raise and do not fly even though they do have wings. However, it does take a while to get a large colony established. I think I've had mine going for about 2 years.
