    [​IMG] Does anyone know of a web sight where I can purchase freezed dried meal worms for a good price? Presently I am buying from Mealworms Time (10 oz. Economy Re-fill Bags for Dried Mealworms) at a price of $48.99 for two bags. These economy bags last approximately six to eight weeks which breaks down to about one bag or so a month. The freezed dried mealworms are a great training aids plus a healthy treat. Whenever I need to call the pullets and chicks in from free range I just shake the plastic bottle that I keep the mealworms in and they come a running. I know my wife and I (mostly her) sometimes over indulge our girls with healthy treats like mealworms, plain yogurt, kale, watermelon, corn on the cob, and papya; but this is getting expensive; and the mealworms which are their favorite are being at the top of the pricing list. I have even tried Mealtimes wax grubs which are less expensive but the girls whom are all high class perfer the mealworms over the grubs. And thats not to say they don't eat the grubs. And with all their treats, the taste of their eggs are undescribable [​IMG] We do not care to raise fresh mealworms because of the ick factor according to my wife although that would be less expensive in the long run. Any ideas beside cutting down on the consumption of treats would greatly be appreciated. We enjoy treating our girls almost as much as they enjoy receiving their treats.
