While I usually drop maggots into the fish ponds, as those fishies love
them so, my chickens do eat them when I uncover my compost piles to turn or
add. They haven't gotten sick yet. Maybe different kinds of maggots
produced by different flies produce different results.
Also, I have quite a collection of frogs and toads hanging around the
compost piles, safely under the covers--the chickens love them too.
Those chickens eat everything...saw one finishing off a mouse the cat had
gotten and discarded.
