    Bought very small mealworms for 4-5 week old chicks. How important is it that I get the mealworms separated from the flaky stuff they're packed in before serving to chicks? Little boogers are TINY.

    Thank you! I emailed the manufacturer to ask what they're packed in also.

    It's wheat bran. Totally edible.

    Make sure that your chicks get some type of grit so that they can process the mealworms.

    Not only is wheat bran edible, it's very nutritious, too.
