Editor’s note: No, George Prell’s friend Karl isn’t late for Easter with the following thoughts. He could be on to an idea whose time has come. – John
So what if you fed different plants to rabbits? Think of all the plants rabbits eat. Then you let the Black Soldier Fly larvae eat the rabbit manure. Would not have to be their only diet, but I want to find out about that. They eat cattle and horse manure, and horses and cows eat plants.
Then the grubs could be a major part of the diet for chickens and ducks. So you would be getting eggs from plants via rabbits.
* Rabbit manure to Black Soldier Fly larvae.
* BSF larvae to chickens and ducks.
* And eggs from the chickens and ducks.
As a child I had both rabbits and chickens and loved taking care of them. The only thing missing was the Black Soldier Fly larvae. Who knew about them in those days?
I really want to try it this summer. What do you think, George?
