    It depends how often you want to give them treats!
    I have 6 hens, they are all crazy over these things.
    I will give a small handful a day, or more if I am using them for training(like follow me, get in cage, stuff like that)
    They have quite a bit of protein, and all chickens like bugs. Maybe sprinkle a cup or so
    among them a day. It's entirely up to you. They are kind of expensive!!
    Good luck in Bali, hope the Komodo Dragons won't eat your chickens, haha. Enjoy your new home.
