Silk worms!

In an unexpected windfall, I seem to have inherited a tub full of silkworms. They were intended as chicken food/treats, but now I'm perversely hoping to get a few of these to the coccoon stage. We have raided mulberry leaves from a neighbor's yard down the street, and this might be a good time to introduce myself to the new neighbors. "Um, hi, you have a mulberry tree, and I'd like to be able to pick a few leaves off of it to feed my silkworms. Oh, and I notice that you have an Irish flag you use as a curtain upstairs, and there is another one that looks like interlace. Are you Irish? Fannish? Do Renfaire?"

Of course, just knocking on a door to ask for food for some silkworms could either make them think I'm daft or a kindred spirit...
