    Yes, I raised 1000's and 1000's and fed them to the chickens as well as worms.

    Crickets are a good treat and I'd feed them to mine, but I breed dubia for my reptiles so I tend to feed the chickens my extras of those instead. Plus, I raised them so I know what they've been eating since birth!
