Why are Meal worms so good?

If you have just learnt about Dried Mealworms for Chickens, here are some of the reasons why they are good for your Chickens. Natural Mealworms are treats that Chickens simply love. Chickens in the wild eat insects. In a pen, they lack that natural protein source. For chickens and laying hens, they are a healthy treat and supplement for the diet of your flock. Use to boost protein in your hens diet. Laying Hens need high protein for healthy egg producing. Mealworms deliver that extra protein. Also, just a few scattered around the pen can encourage the natural foraging instincts of Chickens. If you prefer you can mix them into your pellet mix in your Dine A Chook Chicken Feeder. They also are an excellent tonic for moulting birds. Learn how to Rehydrate Mealworms

Use meal worms as treats for:

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

Important to remember when using Dried Mealworms. Always ensure your Chickens have plenty of water when using any dehydrated or dry feed mix. The chickens use the water to soften the food as well as help in healthy digestion.
