My chook is moulting, and I wanted to increase her protein and give her something different that she might enjoy. Happy (named by one of my kids) hasn't had mealworms before; she really likes them, just as they are - no oil, no soaking, straight from the bag, no fuss. They are not her most favourite food in the whole world, but she definitely likes them and will run up and wait for me to give them to her.
I try to buy Australian made food for my family and pets, but couldn't find any mealworms - dried or fresh, made in Australia, and yes, these are grown in China, but appear to have quality standards etc (see Chubby's website). I also wasn't sure how the rest of my family would take to having live bugs in the fridge, and l wasn't confident in growing them myself, so dried, from Chubby's, seemed the best option.
I'm happy with purchase and would purchase again.
