    Powdered flour is going to be very difficult for them to eat.

    Second vote for baking it up and serving it as cooked weevil cake

    By the way, chocolate is very bad for most mammals. I have no idea how birds react to it, but I wouldn't feed chocolate to my poultry without seeing a genuine academic study that proves chocolate is safe for them.

    I couldn't stomach the thought of cooking weevils in my oven. I'd just toss the cake mixes in the trash - or pour the powder along with the weevils into the compost pile.
