    Is it possible to feed chickens too much mealworms. I have 3 8-week old Barred Rocks and give them a handful of mealworms everyday. What are y'alls thoughts?

    I don't think it really hurt them but i would make sure most of what they are eating is chick starter.

    They have starter avail all day in the run. God knows they like to eat that. I'm thinking they are pigs not chickens.

    I give my birds watermelon, corn,Cheerios, meal worms,and apples.
    From what I know don't give your chickens anything in the onion family.
    hoped this helps

    Up above the post is a heading called Learning Center. Under this heading there is a list of things you can and should never feed your chickens Good reference. Just thought I'd mention it.
