    I have a broody hen that is sitting on three duck eggs and I wanted to get her a nice treat. Do chickens like dried mealworms?

    They love ANY mealworms. Look for "Mealworm farming" thread here.

    Oh, yes. Get out of their way when I give them dried mealworms - you could lose a couple fingers!

    I'll say this, when I feed mine the dried meal worms I have the shyest of the bunch peck me on my back pocket to let me know she there. She just don't want to fight the others. And do they get demanding. Very bold bunch of chichens at that time. 8 monsters.

    Ok, thats good. I bought a small pack just for her. Maybe my ducks will eat it? My ducks hate me! I want my ducklings to like me but they wont give in?! Maybe now they will lol.
