I have a friend who keeps wanting to give me red wrigglers but I have had no place to put them where they won't freeze in the winter or be in the house where they could escape.
I am considering building a rabbitry on one wall of the chicken house with hanging cages. The house has an old raised wooden floor. I can fence that area off from the chickens and put red wrigglers underneath. Do you think they would stay there and multiply? If any escape they'd be gobbled up and I'm ok with that too. That would be an added benefit, I think.
Will they stay on the wooden floor in the rabbit poop or should I put them in buckets underneath. I can get all the very large plastic buckets I want that have just had soap in them. I will put in the moist shredded paper, etc for the worms and leave the buckets open under the rabbit cages. Should I use wider rubbermaid containers or not use any containers and just leave them it all on the floor?
This is a new idea and I haven't given it a lot of thought yet.
