Worms

I know what you are thinking. This is supose to be a blog about chickens. Not only has it been too long since I posted, but now I'm posting about worms. It's ok, really it is. We'll get to the chickens eventually.

For now, it's worms. We went to a 4-H meeting tonight and came home with a bin full of worms. We also have another bin for Jade to start a new worm farm. Red Wrigglers. That's what they are. With any luck they will multiply enough to keep us in good garden soil and provide plenty of fish bait.

So how does this tie into worms? It gives us a way to compost chicken manure faster. At least that's what I'm going with for now.

The chicks come in about two weeks. I'll get pictures up as soon as they get here.

Yay!! Chickens in 2 weeks - you're going to have SO much fun.
And worms are TOTALLY part of life with chickens. Aside from composting chicken manure faster...your chickens will about die with delight when they find (and gobble up) a worm from your garden!!
