Hi everyone !We put a log in our coop and found out that it was full of termites!After chipping it open our birds filled them selves up on the tiny insects. Are temites safe to eat on a regular basis ?

Not sure about online (but most any pet supply site). However, if you have a pet store nearby you would, most likely, be able to buy them cheaper there since you would save on shipping. I know most places will get things like that in bulk for you if need be.
