    I started a small colony of meal worms on wheat meal. I had to buy far more than I could possible use for the worms in several years. Is the wheat meal an acceptable food supplment for the chickens. I feed flock raiser with free access to oyster shell and about 2 hours a day of free ranging.

    sure you can give it to them. not sure how fine it is texture wise, but if you mix it with the flock raiser they should gobble it up.
