    I just got a bag of mealworms from the local pet store and was told by the cashier that mealworms if swallowed whole can eat there way out of a chicken. I have never heard of this and cannot see how this could even be possible. Has anyone ever heard of this?

    She doesn't know what she's talking about. Live mealworms won't do that.
