I got african night crawlers. I think I know Why they are called night crawlers... they like to escape at night! Yuck. I have had them in my kitchen in a RM bin. I think I am going to get another and divide them. I was reading on a forum. Guess what? They make a Purina worm food! Gotta find this stuff. As it is loved by the worms...
Gotta run, got lots going on today!

Seems *if* you leave a small light on and take the lid off, they stay hidden, but the bedding dries out faster. So perhaps it is an oxygen thing? I think I am going to try Liz's carpet trick. I just worry what might have been in the carpet. I have washed a piece a few times and let it bake in the sun on our side walk. I suppose it should be safe. This is a remnant from MIL. I will post results
you can also cover them with wet cardboard and they also eat it I keep night crawlers in a big wooden box with screened holes in the bottom and you have to cover it in the summer with a fly screen top Suzanne

Night crawlers! My farm is absolutely loaded with them, everywhere. At night when I walk out with a head lamp on I see them disappear into the ground just ahead of me. Watch out- they were pulling down my onion starts after I'd planted them. Made like weird loops with the green tops, tucking them back under the soil Or just pulling them out. At first I thought it was birds or some other weird critter. But after searching around on the web discovered it's the night crawlers. Seriously,check it out. There are videos of them on line.
I'm not sure how I feel about them. I read that they will cause the disappearance of regular earthworms. Not sure if they eat them or what. I do know that it's hard to find regular earthworms out here.
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
