Benefits of Dried Mealworms for Chickens

Imagine eating the same pellet feed every day. Life would become very boring. Chickens love dried mealworms. They are tasty, and when scattered around they are fun to find when foraging. There are other reasons why mealworms are an essential staple for many backyard chicken keepers. Making an egg requires a stable high protein diet. When supplemented into a good diet, Dried Natural Mealworms provide chickens all the protein they need to make healthy, delicious eggs. Laying Hens need high protein for healthy egg producing. Mealworms deliver that extra protein. You can also mix them into your pellet mix in your Dine A Chook Chicken Feeder. They also are an excellent tonic for moulting birds.

Use Dried Mealworms for tasty treats:

  • Chickens and Poultry
  • Caged Birds
  • Attracting wild birds to your backyard
  • Reptiles and Amphibians
  • Fish
  • Some marsupials

It is crucial when using Dried Mealworms always ensure your chickens have plenty of water. Chickens use water to soften the worms. It also helps with healthy digestion.
