Post Hello from MODESTO CA!
Hello, My name is Tyler I usually go by Ty.. I live in the city of Modesto, CA and raise chickens and was hoping to raise these grubs not only for my chickens but also for my nephews bearded dragon.. Well my first attempt i bought larvae and then lost them all to one single chicken scratching in there.... I was wondering if anyone on this site also could potentially send me some free larvae or larvae that doesn't cost me an arm and an ear on the internet... I have some flies that have been coming in but I had a ton of larvae in one bucket then over night like... All of them disappeared so i dumped that contained that still had some larvae in it and put dry grains around the side of the bucket to try to prevent them from escaping.. I need help guys!

Hi Ty and welcome to our forum. Can't help you with larvae but have a look at our list of Black Soldier Fly Larvae Vendors (link)

Here's a simple bin design that will keep the chickens out:

There are more bin designs in the D-I-Y BSF Bioconversion Units (link) section.
