We specialise in Quality Mealworms for chickens and poultry. Your feathered friends will absolutely love them. In the wild chicken and poultry naturally, have insects as part of their diet. Such insects play a crucial role in supplementing their diet for laying eggs. Egg laying requires a great deal of protein. One medium egg can contain up to 35% of protein. For chickens and poultry, in general, there are two things which go hand in hand with quality egg production. A good nutrient rich pellet feed as well as a protein supplement. Natural mealworms are the best and most affordable way to bring additional protein to the diet of your chickens. Our Dried Mealworms 2.55kg is perfect for large backyard flocks.

If you prefer you can also rehydrate Natural Mealworms for Chickens using Dine A Chook Apple Cider Vinegar with garlic. The health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for chickens is becoming more appreciated especially in commercial chicken operations.

How to rehydrate Dried Mealworms using Apple Cider Vinegar

You can use diluted Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV for rehydrating dried meal worms. And it is very cost effective. Simply take a plastic container, add 2.5ml of ACV and mix with 500ml of fresh water. Now add your mealworms and allow to soak until soft. It is important to ensure you dilute the ACV as it will burn the throat of the chicken if you do not.

It also is acknowledged that ACV can lower the ph in the digestive tract. This lower ph makes it less desirable for intestinal worms and other harmful bacteria. It is suggested it may increase calcium absorption which may increase the strength of eggshells.

Apple Cider Vinegar adds a great range of essential vitamins and minerals to the diet of chickens. It contains potassium, acetic acid as well as malic acid just to name a few.
