One thing is for sure, chickens love being spoilt. Treats come in many forms, such as fresh greens from the garden or even grass clippings. Feeding healthy treats, like greens and Dried Mealworms, in moderation, provides chickens with the extra vitamins and minerals they require to lay healthy, delicious eggs.
For the best results, feed each chicken around 10 mealworms every second day. Simply throw Mealworms on to the ground to encourage natural foraging, add to the feeder or feed directly from your hand. Dried Mealworms are perfect for taming and training your chickens.
