    "My chickens love it"
    Pros - Tasty to chickens, dry, special treat
    My chickens loved these mealworm treats. If you want to teach your chickens to come to you, this is the best motivation. My chickens will come for this over fresh greens and veggie scraps.

    "birds LOVE the dried mealworms!!!!"
    Pros - very easy to give to them
    Cons - sometimes you get a different kind of bug (some times there was a dries out beetle in my bag)
    my chickens LOVE the mealworms!!! (my ducks not as much) but this is a really nice treat for them.

    "Wonderful treats!"
    Pros - Tasty, chickens love it, gives them entertainment, gives them the needed nutrients, you shake the bag & they come running!
    Cons - A bit on the pricey side, sometimes a lot of dust, chickens get addicted!
    My chickens adore these mealworms! I love getting them, even though they're expensive. Chickens are worth the money![​IMG] I would just raise my own, but I would NEVER be able to allow mealworms, live mealworms, into my home! Ew, just the thought makes me gag[​IMG].
    The chickens get addicted, they need those worms! I don't mind buying them, but it's really getting ME addicted! Now I just have the need to buy them!
    I love how when I shake the bag they come running as fast as possible and try to get some before I even open the bag!
    Overall, it's perfect![​IMG]

    Would ducks and geese like this also? Just wondering what kind of treats are out there for ducks and geese. :)

    But from now on will get the live ones from Ebay come from USA.. I have ordered twice already MY chicks and 1year old crazy for them....

    Sometimes it comes on sale for less, so I watch for sales. I use it to bribe the girls when I need to do something they don't like, such as holding still to be weighed, or having their leg bands replaced.

    An easy way to reduce the squabbles is to broadcast it by hand throughout the entire chicken yard. A small amount broadcasted can keep them busy for quite a while hunting for all of the tasty treats.

    Thank you for the tip! Always looking for a new healthy treat. Will see if I can get it locally, if not, Amazon. Thanks!

    Thanks for the "amazon $ tip". I'll have to figure if that is cheaper (shipping and all) than T.S.. Tried growing them ~ they all died ~ my luck. Can't seem to grow bugs or weeds. (Espote)
