    "Legal crack in a bag for your chickens!"
    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.

    "Very Pricey Treats"
    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.

    "Can't get any better than this!"
    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! [​IMG]

    My chickens love these. They see the bag and come flying and squawking to the fence, and then they try to get through it to the bag. The only two problems: it's kind of expensive for a small bag, and the bags are never big enough. It's gone before i know it and then the chickens look up at me expectantly like, "Where's more?" Overall, they are a great treat.

    Um,
    mealworms and earthworms are not created. You can raise the mealworms yourself from the darkling beetle. It doesn't look too hard but sort of gross. Check out the link from Gramma Chick.

    Hmmm.. haven't tried giving them to the babies. The big girls go absolutely nuts over them. We call them their "drugs!" I started with the little bag from the hardware store (for wild birds) and the girls know the bag when I come out with it. So I fill it up with the bulk ones I bought last time. They crack me up! They crowd each other and pace back & forth in front of the gate til I get up there. I have to practically push them aside in order to get in the pen, and while I'm trying to get the gate closed, they fly up and try to grab the bag out of my hands! I end up giving them 4-5 handfuls because they feed like crazed sharks, often fighting over them! I only give them to them every other day. Too expensive to give every day! I got a good deal on Amazon tho. Five pounds for $36.99. I got it in December and still have about half the bag.Wow, I just checked Amazon and they're on sale now for $28.99 with free shipping and not eligible for Prime tho, which is no big deal. I just love watching the girls in their feeding frenzy. They're so funny! I might have to try soaking them in water to see what happens. Also must try with the new babies. I bet they'll love 'em too!

    How do you create those non freeze dried mealy worms? I want to make a HUGe amount but not in my kitchen where I do quite a bit of baking (wole grain and a lot of it is gluten free....)

    I also plan to create some earth worms for the chickens. Will they like those?

    Mine totally ignore the freeze dried. Their "crack" are the live meal worms! Fed my babies grubs I found when building their coop and pen. You're off easy if yours like freeze dried. Good for you!

    they are great! We put ours in Ziploc and add a little water too soften and keep them in the fridge for a cool treat. But only a days worth at a time.

    I do not know if all the locations carry them, but Lowes has mealworms in a pretty good sized bag with their bird seed and what not and we typically buy it from there now instead of this brand. Amazon also carries them where you can buy them in bulk for cheaper too. Just a thought. Our chickens love them so much, and are trained to go back into their run for them.

    If you haven't already discovered this -- chickens are fierce carnivores! They will go nuts for ground beef!
