Pros: Tames chicks quickly, they absolutely go nuts for it, will make you smile over the antics.

Cons: Addicting for both you and the cacklers. You want to treat them, they want the treats. They are a bit spendy.

I am new to keeping chickens. Saw this at Wilco feed stores where I bought my first chicks. Bought it and some chick grit to try taming the little ones a bit. Holy Cow!! they absolutely go nuts over these. The small bag was gone in about a week and a half, with me giving about two small handfuls a day, at most. The babies wanted to peck my hand to shreds, jumping on my arm and doing all they could to get them before the next chick could. I started calling these chicken crack. Read how some put these in water before giving to the foul, gotta try that next.


Cons: Pricey

I've never bothered with purchasing Happy Hen Treat Mealworms, because I just purchase the mealworms for wild birds. Same exact thing for nearly half the price. And you probably even get more mealworms. 


Pros: The girls loooove them

Cons: Even the largest bag offered isn't big enough!

According to the reactions of my girls, these treats are the only treats worth having. That is next to fresh caught crickets. I highly recommend. Also, my local feed place advised to let them soak in water about 10 minutes and they'll plump up and become more "life-like". I guess that means they'll be more squishy. They advised that this will help the girls get more water and they'll enjoy them more! Will post an update after trying that!  :yiipchick


Pros: Chicks love it, can break them apart like potato chips

          The last batch of hens I had, I gentled down using bitten-off pieces of apple, which eventually had them in my lap. My new chicks, however, were treated to dried mealworms. At first I was kind of grossed out because, you know, it's worms. However, no sooner had I stuck the dead worm into the brooder than I had fuzzballs all over me!  It's really cool how they know what a worm is from day one, and because of that, I get willing victims of fluff-butt cuddle! Already invested in a 10oz bag!


Pros: Big whole worms, easily crumbled for smaller pieces, resealable package, my ducks love them.

Cons: Easily tipped by frenzied ducklings trying to devour them through the bag, which is messy if not sealed properly. ..

Birds of a Feather love these worms altogether. Watching my duckling try and take off with pieces makes my day.


Pros: My chickens LOVE them, easy to store and feed, great source of protein.

Cons: Pricey for such a little bag, now my chickens expect to get these every time I give them treats.

I bought these last Christmas for my chickens. They go absolutely crazy about them. I just wish they were a little cheaper for such a small bag. It's nice how they are easier and less messy than live mealworms but my chickens still like them. My flock will be receiving these for Christmas again this year. D.gif


Pros: Every chicken loves it, it helps tame chickens

Cons: Can cause pushy chickens

I bought these for my chickens a while ago, and they loved it! My old, cranky leghorn hen loves it, my chicks love it, and my friend's tiny serama hen (who is visiting) loves it. They really do go into a frenzy!

I find that these mealworms are really useful for taming the chicks. They are very flighty, but when I give them mealworms, they come running over.

My old hen is already very tame but can be violent and picky. She loves these mealworms though, and keeps asking for more. The one thing I would say is bad about this product is that it makes her really pushy. I'll give her a few, and she'll keep following me and jump up at the bag and even peck me because she wants more. It's quite scary.


On the other hand, these mealworms work for all beak sizes, as the serama hen can easily break them into little pieces and eat them. They're also convenient because they're resealable (at least, the bag I got was) and not gross to handle as live mealworms can be. It has all the benefits of live mealworms minus the effort it takes to keeping them alive.


Overall, I'd recommend this product, but keep in mind that it can cause very desperate, crazy, pushy chickens that would willingly eat the entire bag at once if allowed. :barnie


Pros: chickens like it, dogs like it, cats like it-(i haven't tried it, though)

Cons: they'll run you down to get it!

one of my dogs burst into the midst of my chickens while they were gobbling up meal worms.  i thought i was going to have an injured or dead chicken for sure!  but, no, Penny just wanted meal worms and started licking them up off the grass.  her big brown eyes are sooo hard to resist. and the chickens come right up to my feet to get them.


Pros: My chickens LOVE these treats!!

Cons: Expensive and spoils them!

I started this little habit of giving them these meal worms as treats so that I could get the flock more tame. They love them so much I can pet them while they eat. I have spoiled them though and they expect to be fed them at least once a day. So this has become quite expensive!!  I am learning to raise them now and it's quite easy, but not as quick as just buying a bag.  pop.gif


Pros: Birds love it!

Cons: price

i decided to purchase happy hen treats Mealworm frenzy for my favorite rooster who is very picky about what he will eat.  When i threw some of these into his dish he went nuts! I will definitely buy these again when i can but the price is a little high to me for a small bag which doesn't last here on my farm.
