Saturday, May 20, 2017
haikaikoshonichi. 3 age third day. We had many applications in this spring.
Silkworm left for the city outside, outside the prefecture.
If silkworm comes to house, you move to breeding container kindly, and please give some bait. Silkworm is surely hungry.

3 age fourth day. Sleep begins soon.
Hungry silkworm ate bait like a brick.
Silkworm which is close together in container seems to begin sleep.
<reference> About net
Though we do care of silkworm, net is convenient. We actually introduce state using net.
Use of <net is just preference! >
※We increase when we click photograph.

①Net (Before and After of photograph) to let silkworm amount, and to move
 …Photograph put bait as weight. We put net (silkworm rises without bait), and silkworm goes up halftone plate in a few minutes. Every net which silkworm went up can move.

②Net (photograph of blue net) to drop feces
 …We put thing of halftone plate of size that feces fall on the newspaper and use. Cleaning becomes easy.

If there is handy net near, please try.

4 age first day. We moved silkworm of Myougi Government building which was still in transparence pack to yellow breeding container. Hungry silkworm has finished eating bait as a substitute for weight in no time.
Thursday, May 25, 2017
4 age third day. We divided small silkworm into edge and fed. As for the silkworm, movement is somewhat slow probably because it was cold.
Friday, May 26, 2017
4 age fourth day. Movement of silkworm is slow today as it is cold. We are going to begin sleep from tomorrow.
<reference> About "sleep" (we do not see)
Silkworm enters for run-up called "sleep" (we do not see) before making self-renewal.
We eat nothing without lifting head like photograph, and working when in a condition of sleep.
Let's observe state quietly if we find silkworm of sleep without feeding.

5 age first day. Silkworm of Myougi Government building began ecdysis.
We cannot readily see at moment of ecdysis, but silkworm which became 5 ages when we find trace of ecdysis is evidence that is. Silkworm which became 5 ages comes to have a bigger head like White than silkworm of 4 ages. Please compare.
Tuesday, May 30, 2017
5 age second day. Room temperature is 26 degrees. Movement of silkworm is somewhat slow.
Most silkworms seemed to finish ecdysis. Because skin of silkworm which had just finished shedding off the skin was easy to be damaged softly, we fed kindly from the top without cleaning.
Wednesday, May 31, 2017
5 age third day. Silkworm which becomes 5 ages, and eats much bait every day. Silkworm of Myougi Government building is approximately 6 centimeters now. It seems to be slightly small.

When it is breeding manual, we come to give artificial feed of 400g today, but silkworm worsens meal bega when artificial feed dries. So do not give all once artificial feed, of silkworm when give diligently while eating, and seeing condition, silkworm is well brought up. Please try.
…Gourmet silkworm seems to like thing which is fresh (?).
We found <extra> Black silkworm (kuroko)! 
At silkworm farming family in the city, we found black silkworm. It is like silkworm called Black silkworm (kuroko). What kind of cocoon will Black silkworm really form? Look forward to.
White silkworm is Gunma 200 having the same as silkworm distributing in grass-roots sericulture.

5 age fourth day. We decided to give mulberry from today. We hear sound to eat mulberry like rain lightly. As silkworms of Myougi Government building are somewhat small, we aim at recovery with mulberry (!)
Friday, June 2, 2017
5 age fifth day. Silkworms which have finished eating mulberry which we put up the day before. A lot of today gives mulberry, too.
Monday, June 5, 2017
5 age eighth day. When it is breeding manual, 4th was indication of upper family, but silkworm of Myougi Government building does not have sign to still become cocoon.
Tuesday, June 6, 2017
5 age ninth day. Silkworms of Myougi Government building which was one's own pace have begun to finally become cocoon. At favorite place, we each make cocoon hard.
Friday, June 9, 2017
Silkworm has habit that is going to prepare cocoon into high place…. There were a lot of silkworms which we prepared cocoon into between leaves of mulberry well without climbing mabushi.
Tuesday, June 13, 2017
There was silkworm which was lost on top of mabushi. There is not space to be able to prepare cocoon into although we have finished climbing mabushi and seems to be in trouble.
We will take down quietly under mabushi if we find such a silkworm.

Cocoons from person who participated in grass-roots sericulture have begun to gather in Myougi Government building.
shumayu of Myougi Government building seems to be next week.
Thursday, June 15, 2017
Cocoons from all of you gather in Myougi Government building one after another.
Difference of heat and cold hears voice that had a hard fight for breeding intensely in this spring, but anything is excellent cocoon. Thank you for bringing up carefully.
(in the one during breeding continuation, still thanks in advance for your help.)

There was receipt of goods of cocoon of sericulture farming family today, too. It is a large quantity of cocoons.
Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Myougi Government building did cocoon oyster today. We think that it was long after becoming 5 ages.
And moth was mixed in cocoon from all of you soon.
As it becomes moth for approximately two weeks after silkworm began to make cocoon, we would like presentation of cocoon early. Unfortunately cocoon after moth appeared cannot have thread.…Silkworm moth is beautiful.

In this, we make breeding diary of spring breed of silkworms the end in 2017.
Silkworm, please last, too.
