The BSF project was an astounding success so its time to start the next batch. Seriously, the chickens love them with their excitement and morale unparalleled! This video starts with the actual product purchased from eBay, no affiliation, and shows how they are to be placed in the tote, less the surrounding dry media. The waste left from their previous project will soon be used as compost for the next gardening project. It’s all fun.

The final stages of growth and ready to transfer to the tote for feeding. At this point, they just work their way out of the tote and get eaten. Of note: they didn’t seem to like jalapeños or cherry peppers. Oily and butter soaked paper, something worms would eat, were passed over. Carrots and some other fibrous material, to include citrus, didn’t get consumed. Bones were picked clean, even the marrow removed.

This, along with Day 11 video loaded up out of order because Bitchute doesn’t always process and publish efficiently.

The larvae are now in their final tote with escape ports. From here, they just march towards the light. NEVER go to the light!

Checking progress of the BSF Larvae that seems to convert nearly everything put into the tote as food into fat and protein. I had added my Greasy napkins from a BBQ restaurant, as well as the corn cobs, bones, and oil soaked bags. I’ve cleared out the fridge from leftovers, “science projects”, spoiled milk, rice, pasta, udon noodles, chicken bones, and bacon grease. The chickens love this and seem to get fanatical when these things are thrown to them!

Day 11 of the phenomenal growth. I’m amazed that nearly everything put into the tote is converting into larval mass.

The project is nearing completion and the chickens know that the 40 gallon Tote contains a tasty snack. When I get ready to check the tote, they come running and jump in grabbing snacks as fast as they can. Tomorrow they will be transferred to a different tote so they can escape at will.

The BSF project is really coming along! In a week or so, they’ll be marching to the chicken run. There were some mistakes with this project and a steep learning curve but overall, it was pretty simple to generate some very spectacular chicken feed.

The project continues and the larvae are getting huge. I’ll be getting some more food into there as they are eating my current feed as fast as I can get it in there!

I bought this years ago to make myself obamaproof and until now, I didn’t need it. It is crazy out there and nothing is available. It was not cost effective to spend 10 minutes to make a bullet when you could buy them for 7 -10 cents. Now, everything is gone and if you can find it, it’s $1 a round! Time to get those children to work, I knew there was a reason to have them.

This is a chicken tractor I made about 14 years ago and it’s still functional. I’m only posting now because I’ve got a temporary tenant! Another video will be posted, eventually detailing construction. In case you’re wondering, the owner of the chicken scoured the neighborhood and asked around. We returned her the next day.

This is the BSF project Day 8. The purpose is to convert waste into usable fertilizer and create healthy natural feed for my egg laying machines. The chickens are my pets as well as food producers. It would be a shame to restrict their diet to just feed, sure, feed supplies everything they need except VARIETY. Maybe I’m projecting, but I must assume they want something more and it is easy and fun to accommodate them.

This is the fifth day of the project, they are at least 5 times bigger than yesterday! They are in an exponential growth phase, packing on weight from fat and protein. They will be going into the chicken cage so they can try to escape and get eaten.

Grong Norway, May 28th, nearly June. Surprising that it is still snowing... oh, this is 0400 in the morning, explains the midnight sun.

Street musician in Barcelona Spain in the Gothic Quarter. The Asian man’s behavior is most interesting, it’s almost like he left a few €‘a in a tip and wants to make sure he got his money’s worth.

This is a stream in Norway May 29th. It’s colder than it looks but the sound of the water flowing over the rocks and the falls is spectacular. Very relaxing to watch, in retrospect, I wish I had made it longer but it was FREEZING outside!

Ever wonder what stairs look like after a few hundred years of people going up and down? And what’s it like at the top, where the tower is very slim? Sure, you can see great pictures in travel logs, but here is a boring video of what it’s actually like to descend from the top!

Video of BSF eggs I bought from EBay, 2 grams for $30 delivered, with my eBay bucks discount and the government theft, laughingly called “tax”, they were $28 delivered. I followed enclosed instructions and they hatched! I also watched some videos on YouTube and this helped. Soon they will become chicken food. The reason why there are broken up egg shells is because they kill the fungus. The egg shells alter the pH and since they are free, I used them, I also add to my worm farm. If you watch my Day 4, video, you can see it clearly works.

This is the first day the baby chicks are able to go in the run. The run itself is overgrown with weeds and abandoned vegetables. They are fully feathered now and need a more natural lifestyle. They cleared out the vegetation in a few days!

BSF eggs that have increased in size by about 1,000%!!! And that is since yesterday.

Larvae will be quality chicken feed to make my pet chickens healthy and happy by converting scraps and yard waste into fertile planting soil for my healthy living city lifestyle.

Allowing chickens to free range at the end of the day, they return to cage without herding once the sun goes down.

Chicken coop that I made years ago out of scrap lumber that I pulled out of the dumpster. It’s is still functional but deteriorating. Next one will have a steel frame welded out of conduit with metal or fiberglass roof with plywood shell.

This is a chicken run built from electrical conduit, very strong and economical. Perfect for city dwellers that raise backyard chicken for self sufficiency.

This is part 2 of a 4 part video series that details the various models of the JC Higgins shotguns made for Sears and Roebuck from 1952 till about 1966 by High Standard. Information is scarce and this is accurate to the best of my knowledge. I’ve included all models that came with ventilated ribs and shown the various deviations of those models. This includes mid series production changes that I’ve concluded through observation. I cover parts interchangeability, parts acquisition, disassembly/assembly, and troubleshooting. There are opinions and values and pros and cons of ownership.

There is only my monotonous voice and examples of the guns. No banjo music, no metal guitar riffs, and no editing; filmed completely on my iPhone! I’m merely passing on information I’ve gleaned after six years of collecting, ownership, and research. When I started, I had no information, just a gun that wouldn’t function. I am hoping that this helps someone.
