    Mealworms! They also like melons of any kind and thankfully, Japanese Beetles! But by far the favorite is the good old mealworm. They even know the container....

    Mine go nuts over millet. In fact, we plan to plant about an 1/8th of an acre of it next spring.

    Mine are crazy about tomatoes. They really love any kind of worm or bug, but totally freak out if I toss a tomato in the run.

    Our favorite thing to feed them are the tomato hook worms--tug of war!!

    I get my meal worms at the gas station down the road but I live in a rural area where fishing is prevelant. Any place that sells bait should have them.

    I am going to try tomatoes today!
