Chubby Mealworms 3lb Tub Giveaway

Protein is a very important part of a chicken's nutritional needs. Our birds free range and nibble up all the insects they want, but there is something about mealworms that just make them loose their minds! I swear mealworms do to chickens, what cat nip does to cats!

As you may already know, we have a mealworm farm. Yes, we raise our own mealworms in order to provide a little extra protein to our poultry as a treat. I just could no longer stomach paying $4 for 100 mealworms at the pet store.  But I know many of you are a lot like my hubby and would prefer NOT to raise your own mealworms. And that is why I am so happy that today's Spring Fling Giveaway is for a 3 lb tub of mealworms from Chubby Mealworms!

Last year when I started working with Chubby Mealworms I wondered if my girls go for the dried mealworms the way they went for the live ones?  And the results? They went just as crazy for the dried mealworms as they did for the live ones! In fact whenever I take a Chubby Mealworm package outside, I swear they recognize the big, thumbs up worm logo because they all come running.


Of course when I showed them the new tub, with the totally awesome handles, Grumpy Goldie became very impatient for me to start serving up the good stuff inside.


Don't believe me that chickens like dried mealworms as much as live one? I took the lid of the tub and before I could open the package, Grumpy Goldie was so impatient, she tried to take matters into her own beak!


While you can serve dried mealworms straight from the package, I like to re-hydrate them. Why? Because if they are re-hydrated you birds will not stuff themselves and get a belly ache from being little pigs. You see, once the dried worms hit their stomach, the worms will being to re-hydrate and expand due to the liquid stomach content. As fast as the birds eat these mealwormes they could become over stuffed quickly due to the re-hydrating occurring internally. Mealworms should be used as a treat, and given in limited quantities anyways, but I know, left to their own devises my flock would eat themselves silly on mealworms in a matter of minutes!


Chubby Mealworms provides a quality product, with no fillers like corn, at a wonderful price. I can honestly say I approve just as much as my flock does! On top of a quality product and a great price, Chubby Mealworms is dedicated to offering great service and delivery, not to mention this product is just so convenient!

You can purchase mealworms in various weights from the Chubby Mealworm site or if you are feeling lucky, throw your name in to win your very on 3 lb tub of mealworms! Trust me, your chickens (and ducks) will thank you!! Don't have poultry? Mealworms are wonderful to feed to wild birds and reptiles too!

  2. My chickens (and ducks, when we had them) love mealworms! Yesterday, I left the lid off the container I store them in while I cleaned their waterer. I come back into the coop and Gertrude has her head and neck in the container! Just munching away on mealworms!
