    You probably got Eisenia Fetida... what you want is Eisenia Hortensis.

    Yeah... the Eisenia Fetida are popular because the multiply fast, and eat a lot of kitchen scraps... they probably got your order mix up.

    If you buy your brood stock from a bait shop, or at least from a supplier that sells adult worms, you shouldn't get screwed over with euros. I mean those are the exact size I got in the mail, I've had them in my bins for a month and they are a fruit/veggie scrap eating machine. I would NOT trust ANY place to sell me juvies or eggs and give me what I ordered.

    I did buy from Jim's a few years ago, bought red wigglers for a bin and they were good. I bought in the winter though so there probably wasnt much demand or orders going out form their shop at that time. Those worms were healthy and reproduced like rabbits until my bin froze solid this past winter and killed them all.

    Uncle jims is known to mess up orders frequently, i'm pretty sure it's intentional. I ordered european nightcrawlers from them one time, and they sent me some euros, but there was red wigglers and blues in there too. I didn't order that kind of worm, and to add insult to injury they didn't even ship the correct weight. It's hard to find someone that ships you what you paid for. I tried ordering from a guy called northwest redworms, I ordered red wigglers and he sent me a wiggler/euro mix. It's alot more common in the worm business than people think- alot of times sellers run low on inventory, so they pad the order with the wrong type of worm, hoping the customer will be too green to know the difference.
    Commercial worm farmer, my outfit is called the little ponderosa worm ranch. I raise red wigglers and Louisiana Swamp Worms for your fishing needs. Full time sales start in 2020.
