Chickens are crazy for meal-worms. When I had a compost going my barred rock chickens discovered mealworms in the pile. Since then every morning when I let the chicken out to free roam they race and fly to the compost pile. Their digging antics are like cats to catnip.
I'm not familiar with mealworms, but Wikipedia says they're the larval stage of the mealworm beetle. They feed on vegetation, dead insects, and can eat polystyrene.
Aren't meal worms anything more than fly maggots?
Friday, Aug 11, the whole family is going to the Indiana State Fair to be presented a sesquicentennial (150) Hoosier Homestead Award. I guess it's sort of a big deal. I'm excited about attending. Our farm began in 1864 with Wm. Silverthorn. (silverthorn-farm.com).
Plinius, how's your garden doing? It's been a long time since you're mentioned it.
Kathy, I have been wanting to grow some meal worms for the bird population that is growing near the bird feeding station in the Fir tree just outside my window. Thank you! I will try the technique
It is difficult for me to imagine not having legalized Cannabis,
Thomas, thank you for all the information. I tagged Natra-Cure products and saw some things that Larry could use.
With Plantar Fasciitis how do you do all that mowing? Even if you do it over several days, that would be a great pain.
I found it easy to lose weight by planning my meals carefully, eating more fresh fruits and vegetables and less starch; I have cut out potatoes, rice, pasta, and reduced the amount of honey and cream I use daily in my coffee. I use a dessert plate instead of a dinner plate for my meals and don't go for second helpings.
I get my New Balance shoes and orthotics from a referral of my podiatrist and Medicare pays the bills. I'm also watching what is happening with Social Security and Medicare under this administration. I don't want to give up any of these benefits to make some wealthy person richer.
