    are they any less nutritious than regular mealworms

    Not going to matter. You'd have to feed a heck of a lot of mealworms to your chickens to notice any nutritional loss between the various ways of storing them compared to live. It's not making up much of their diet.
  3. i bought some freeze dried mealworms recently. the chicks still eat them happily. and it's nice to know that i'm not wasting money on mealworms that get away before the chickens find them.

    the downside is that you lose the entertainment value of the chickens chasing each other after that wiggly worm!
