any pet store will have them

or in the garding section of a garden centre

or then the wild bird section

sorry cant help you any more as im in UK not USA

but they are reasonably priced

a small yoghurt pot size would be a few dollars

they are fed sparingly like you would fish flakes in a fish tank

You can get Mealworms at Tractor Supply Stores, Farm and Fleet, Mills Fleet Farm, Live ones at pet Stores. The Mealworms at the other stores are all dead and freeze dried. Chickens LOVE THEM!!! And they're loaded with protein!!! A very healthy snack for Chickens!!
