6Lbs Chubby Dried Silkworm Pupae

Dried Silkworm Pupae are a 100% natural, high quality, high protein nutritional crunchy treat which can be fed to many animals including wild birds, hedgehogs, turtles, koi and other fish and many reptiles. As well as being naturally high in protein they also have high levels of calcium, nutrients, vitamins and minerals and other essential fatty acids.

We often find that animals can take a while to get used to this new taste. Why not try to crush or grind our Silkworm Pupae into a dust to make a high protein supplement that can be added to their normal food? They can also be soaked in warm water for around 20-30 minutes to rehydrate them and make them easier to eat.

Silkworm pupae have been said to be especially beneficial in the growth and colour enhancement of Koi Carp. They also provide better slime coat protection to resist parasite and bacterial infections resulting in a better, bigger, healthier fish.

Reptile expert, A. Lanois, says that silkworms are, "naturally the healthiest insect you can get" because of their nutritional value and low fat content.

Quality Product but My Chickens Hated Them

I thought I'd give my girls a treat with something different, since they get their beloved Chubbies every day. This was a mistake. They actually showed aversion towards the pupae. Can't say as I blame them as these things really stink. Even my geese steered clear of them. They're nasty enough that I think my dog would probably enjoy them, but the starlings and sparrows cleaned them up before she could try, so they didn't completely go to waste. If you try them for your girls , I'd suggest you start out conservatively. I suspect my girls have been spoiled by their Chubbies -- they are pretty demanding about getting these each evening for their bedtime snack.

Pleased despite mix-up

Actually I never got the silk worm pupae--I received meal worms instead. for some reason. However, my chickens love those, and I didn't mind since the meal worms regular price was actually a little more than what I paid when I ordered the silk worms--so we're all quite happy! I'll try the silk worms next time around.
