1.5kg Chubby Dried Mixes
With our Chubby Dried Mixes, you get the best of both worlds when feeding your pet or garden birds. This mix is sure to enrich your pet's diet giving them a boost of ProteinandCalcium in one handy mixed bag.
We all know why our pets love our great tasting Mealworms, but what about our black soldier fly larvae?
Black Soldier Fly Larvae
Chubby Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae are comparable to dried mealworms but have a much higher calcium value.
Research has shown that natural feed with balanced Ca:P ratios (a perfect treat for hedgehogs) increases animal health and contributes to stronger bones and shiny feathers.
Calcium is especially important for laying birds such as chickens. Lack of calcium can result in poor laying, soft shells and can cause behaviour problems such as egg eating.
Feeding BSF Larvae as a treat is an excellent way to increase these vital nutrients and we can assure you, they will soon become a favourite!
Black Soldier Fly Larvae have many branded names such as: Calci Worms, Phoenix Worms®, Soldier Grubs®, Flygrubs®, Grubblies®, Nutriworms®, Tasty Grubs® but are all are the larvae of the black soldier fly®(Hermetia illucens), we'll just keep things simple and call them what they are :)
Our Dried Mealworms are 100% natural, packed full of protein, vitamins and high-grade edible oils. The high protein content in our dried mealworms can help produce bigger and more flavoursome eggs!
Protein is essential to boost a flocks protein intake through the moulting season ( between autumn & spring). Your flocks immune system will be down, mealworms are an excellent choice to boost their immune system & will help in rapid feather growth.
Mealworms can and will be enjoyed all year round however, winter is the hardest time of year for our wildlife & back yard flocks. Each of our mealworms contain just over 50% Protein! So just a handful per bird per day will be enough to keep your flock warmer in colder temperatures.
Although you can buy live mealworms, dried mealworms are just as good with the added benefit of easy and long-lasting storage.
Any insectivorous (soft billed) bird will love mealworms. The majority of passerines (perching birds) will enjoy them too, especially when they are feeding their young & the protein is essential for their growth.
