Our chickens have been producing between 15 and 20 eggs per day. We don’t use any lights in the chicken coop. We attribute this feat to the extra raw protein we are feeding them from our meal worm farm. The meal worms are doing great and producing like crazy!

    Bluebirds love mealworms! Do you have any bluebird houses on your property? We feed our bluebirds mealworms throughout their breeding season. (Central MN)

    I would like to get started in this and it would be nice to see how it is completely done. Would it be possible to do a complete video from start to finish on your meal worm farm? Thanks we really enjoy watching and learning from your videos!

    Did the containers come with screen or did you make them that way?

  • Jo Lind 10 months ago

    Never started with so many worms, but always seem to run out and have to start again.

  • Mark Barron 10 months ago

    Does seem like lot of effort for little gain. Wouldn't growing duck weed or some other crop yield more food?

  • Linda Ingle 10 months ago

    love it thanks

    I'm checking in to starting my own worm-growing operation and was wondering if you all have an instructional article or video on how to do this? If you don't have an article, can you please point me to one worth reading? I know there's info all over the internet but since you all have a handle on this you probably know what's worth it and what's not.
    Do I just order the worms from Amazon?
    Thank you!

    We would love to see an updated video on the meal worm farm and how you keep your beetles.  My boys, 11 & 9 just started a meal worm farm!  Love your videos!

    thumbs up! great video

  • livingready69 10 months ago

    Is it cheaper to buy the high protein feed for the chickens or to buy the rolled oats to create the meal worms as a supplement and a lower protein feed?

  • jred1838 10 months ago

    Does anyone have a good link on how to establish an meal worm farm? Supplies? Rotation directions?

  • Nicole Pennington 10 months ago

    Zach, Can you please show more on how to make the set up? Like, how do you make the screens? Did your father in law cut out the bottom of the drawer to let the castings fall through to the lower drawer? Thanks in advance! 

  • vadimxp 10 months ago

    Thanks for the video. Have y'all looked into black soldier flys? BSFs are easy to grow and are an excellent source of calcium and protien.
