Slug Factory

Post by dermy on Thu Oct 02, 2014 3:22 pm

I have just harvested about 500+ slug eggs from my composter, which could really use a good Harvesting. I have decided to put them into a small jar as an incubator. I will post picture soon. I will probably update this when I start to see the first few babies.

Yep, just little tiny things. I have started feeding them or else they start to eat the eggs around them [which isn't good]

In about one more month all the eggs should have hatched and some of the slugs will almost be ready to produce their own eggs!

I may be doing a slug over-feeding challenge, which I do believe I have never done before, if I have I don't remember.

Yes and I do believe I will do one, when the eggs all hatch and I move them out of the egg container into a more slug friendly container. I fed this bin and my other bin of slugs with some carrots.

Here are a few pictures:
[This one is a n older photo showing the progress so far:]

Here are some of the slugs:


And a sneak peak at what might become a 2014-2015 Slug O.F.C.!

I hope so, if they have eaten some/most of it in a week then I may do an O.F.C. with them.
