A little story of how chickens became part of the redworm website.
This is part of the fun of utilizing the resources that surround everyone of us. In the process of learning about all the compost critters that live in my compost I discovered one that turns out to be a great food source for chickens. The black soldier fly larva. This larva consumes large amounts of waste quickly and matures in a matter of weeks. In the larval stage it is 40% protein and 20% fat. This turns out to be a good food source for chickens and at the same time it eats up your garbage. The waste from the larva becomes part of the food for redworms to consume. The chickens we now have were originally bought to study the value of the larva, but now they have become part of the family. For more information on the Black soldier fly see out compost critters page.
