Healthy Chicken Snack

I have been giving my girls (and 1 boy) Chubby Mealworms for a number of years. For me, this is their bedtime snack as I load them up in their coop. Even those who are already to sleep will jump down and eat some. They are happy, and I am too.

5lb Chubby Mix (Mealworm & Black Soldier Fly Larvae Combo)

Great American Grown mealworms. Our rescued starling loves them and they keep her healthy and happy.

Happy chickens
