Pros - Great treat
Keeps them busy for a long time
Easy to store
Cons - There is no bag big enough
Mealworms are a huge treat with my birds. They see the bag and it’s a stampede. If they weren’t contained within a pen and they saw me with mealworms, the only thing to do would be to turn and run as fast as I could.
If they have to be in the coop for whatever reason I’ll throw a couple handfuls into the shavings and I don’t have to worry about boredom at all. I’ll come back and there still busily scratching away.
They are a bit pricey which is why they’re a rare treat with my chickens.
Bonus? They double up as treats for my dog. He loved them!!
