    My chicks are about three weeks old. They are already catching and eating little flying bugs and ants. At what age can I give them dry mealworms?

    My previous batch of chicks started eating mealworms and other bugs after about a week from hatching. Mealworms are just beetle larvae, so there shouldn't be an issue.
