Feeding Beardies Earthworms?

Any concerns feeding my Beardie earthworms and/or red wigglers?

We have a small vermiculture setup which only receives food scraps and occasional shredded newspaper or cardboard. No outside leaf litter or anything that might get insectided or herbicided. The worms get fed to koi and comets in our pond. Some get fed to native fish when I take my daughter fishing.

Just thinking Flokei might enjoy a new protein source from time to time. Thoughts?

I have heard that earthworms are excellent insects to feed, it’s just that most people don’t have known, safe sources. If I remember correctly, they have an excellent Ca:P ratio. I tried quite a few times to convince my leos to eat earthworms, but they always found them too unpalatable.
