I was getting live food for Buddy and saw these..
 
What are these and can I feed them to my hog? I’ve never seen them before. Ugh I can’t add picture!!! It says “Red wigglers”. They come in a blue plastic container and they with the worms and crickets.

Red wrigglers are a species of earthworm. They’re more adapted to be used as compost worms, though from the small amount of research I did on them, they’re not much different nutritionally than feeder earthworms. But they are pretty long so you’d have to dice em up

Red wigglers are one of the smaller worms used for fish bait. Great for catching bluegill,perch and crappie, but not normally recomended for hedgies because of parasite concerns.
