HOW DO YOU PREPARE LARVAE FOR CHICKEN?

Agricultural waste is one of the giant demons hovering over the planet. To feed people and animals, a lot of waste is generated. It has amplified by 7.5% annually and pollutes water, air, and soil by releasing harmful gases. Grubs are grown in these conditions, thus strengthening the waste. 

However, there is a sustainable way to cultivate grubs. Companies have increased the leftover waste material’s larvae for chicken and other flocks. Mealworms can also be developed with manure. 

These worms are found in grains, cereal, flour, and plants. They live in dry, dark places and get their nutrients from chicken feed or a living organism. However, gathering loose worms can be difficult. Hence, some people prefer fly larvae for chickens. They are high in protein and other nutrients. 

Raising one’s mealworms is more economical. It does not require significant infrastructure and resides in small spaces. The female beetle lays about 500 eggs during her life course. This pans out to a couple of months. The eggs may take a few weeks to hatch and transform into larvae or mealworms. 

Fly larvae for chicken take nearly three months to fully grow and feed the livestock. There are several stages in a mealworm’s life. The first is a pupa stage, where they look nearly immobile and dead. They refrain from intaking nutrition in any form around this stage. 

One only knows if they are alive by watching them twitch at movements. The pupa stage prolongs for about three weeks post which they hatch into brown beetles, which eventually turn black. Ideally, their lifecycle takes about 5-6 months. 

STEPS TO MAKING YOUR MEALWORM

1. Choose a container 

Choose a container with a lid or mesh that can cover the top. Whatever be the lid, it must enable subtle air circulation. Make sure the container is transparent to see everything that is happening inside. For example, you can witness the different stages of mealworm growth. 

2. Ensure that the container is dry 

The container must be dry and clean before loading anything into it. It should be placed in a dark and dry place, ideally at around 26 degrees. 

3. Feed the worm 

To feed the worm, wheat bran is an excellent choice. Even mashed chicken rolled oats and cereal crumbs will do the trick. These food items must also be dry, or the container will become moldy. 

4. Add mealworms to the mix

The more mealworms you add, the better. They will multiply faster, and soon, you’ll have a farm. Begin with at least 500 and build it on. 

5. Nurture them

The next step nurturing your worms and allowing enough time to help them grow and multiply. Giving them more food is a good idea because they will multiply faster. 

OTHER FOODS TO FEED CHICKENS 

Many like humans, even chickens need a balanced diet. They need insects, greens, worms, seeds, vegetables, and fruits. The other foods that one can feed chickens are: 

1. Scraps 

If your kitchen is replete with scraps that you do not wish to waste, you can also feed it to the chickens. But remember that these scraps should not comprise foods like avocado, garlic, chocolate, onions, or packaged foods. They harm the chicken’s health. 

2. Garden seconds 

Even one’s garden produces scraps like the kitchen. This includes weeds, wrecked vegetables, and leaves. Chickens enjoy leafy vegetables but remember to steer clear of peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, and potatoes. They are harmful to the chickens.
