GREAT MEALWORMS

My little ladies in the Hen Palace love these meal worms. I love the convenience of finding Chubby online and getting them sent automatically. I love that these meal worms are made in the USA. Great price - I just received my second order of these. I order 11 pound bags because I feed them twice a day to my little ladies. I am so glad that I found you online and you send my order automatically every 3 weeks. I recommend your business for those interested in feeding mealworms to your chicks. Price is great and delivery is excellent.
