Fed the Colony a few carrots [3] so I'll add that to the List!

More video on the way tonight as well, I'll try to get one each time I feed the Colony, which should be every 3 or so days, since I want to ensure they are well fed Smile

Total: 23 P.I.C.

I've noticed that some of the beetle population has sadly died [it's nature though they are really old beetles] so I've cleaned out their bin, and now just have the live beetles in this Colony. I'm hoping in the next few weeks or so I'll have more beetles hatching out so I can get another big [this colony still remains big, but just not as big as it used to be] beetle bin.

I've also fed them some more cat food 21 Pieces.

Total: 250

It's been awhile since my last update, I've been feeding them on average carrots every 2-3 days. So that would be around 15 more Carrots since last time, as well as around 20+ more pieces of cat food [in which they are in need of more!]

Total: 235 P.I.C.

I fed the colony another 2 carrots and a piece of cucumber.

Total: 238

I'm thinking about cutting it off soon, since my beetles are starting to die off sadly, it's a natural process. I promise I'll bring something else to the Mealworm blog when I take this "project" down Wink

Well I've decided to "Close" this Over-Feeding Challenge, this colony is just about to "Crash" and I have had bad experience in the past with "continuing Over-Feeding Challenges when I know a Colony is going to Crash. It was a great run though and it lasted exactly as long as I wanted it to! Of Course we never hit our 1000 Goal, but I may have set the bar a little high for this one Razz

Still with a Grand Total of 240 Pieces in Counting they did pretty good for our First Over-Feeding Challenge on the Blog. I won't "Archive" This topic just lock it.



I have plans in the making for another Over-Feeding Challenge very soon!
