    I feed my one RIR, this same mealworm. I give her a spoonful every few days. I find that if the chick don't eat them, ants can be a major problem

    My 17 chickens and 6 guineas would eat a bag that size every day if I'd let them. I'm sure there is an upper limit, but I haven't found it.

    I have 22 chickens, 6 ducks, 2 guineas and a turkey and they will kill for mealworms.
    I only give them a handful or two a day. I use it as a treat for them.
