    Mealworm Starter Sets are back in stock!

    If you're interested in raising mealworms for your chickens or pets, here's a great way to get started.

    The Mealworm Starter Set includes almost everything you'll need to raise these nutritious treats. You'll receive two 6 qt containers with screen vents installed, wheat bran (approx. 1.5 lbs.), 1000 (1200 including 20% overcount) medium sized mealworms, 50 (60 including 20% overcount) freshly morphed, ready-to-lay beetles, and an information sheet. All you need to add when you receive them is a moisture source, like carrots or potatoes. Your chickens will love you! [​IMG] The cost is only $25 plus actual cost shipping via USPS Priority Mail (depends on your ZIP code, ranges between $6.33 and $18.71).

    Light Mealworm Starter Set: For those who live a long ways away, or who otherwise prefer, I will also sell the set without the containers and bran, but with a section of screen, if you want to use your own containers and food, for $15 plus $4.80 postage USPS Priority Mail shipped anywhere in the U.S. (48 states).

    PM me regarding purchasing a Light Mealworm Starter Set, as this specific listing is for the full Mealworm Starter Set.

    Note: The included image is actually the Jumbo Beetle Starter Set, NOT the Mealworm Starter Set, but it gives you a rough idea of about what you'll get. See text for details of what's actually included.

    Also Note: The auction listing software does not allow me to list a range of shipping costs, so see text for details.

    I just wanted to let everyone know how much fun these mealworms can be!

    I bought from Sillybirds in September, and right now the beetles have multiplied.
    They are white when 'new' and turn the darker black/brown within a few days.

    I'm now watching the teeny little worms. I've doubled the boxes at this point.

    And my chickens just love these mealworms! They can't get enough of them.

    Thanks Sillybirds! [​IMG]

    You're very welcome! Thanks for the update. I'm glad yours are doing well and that you've got your new crop coming on. The mealworms are my chickens favorite treat, however they're not getting as many now that I'm selling a lot!
