FAQ: Ingredients + Usage

Yes! Pullet Together, Cluck Here

Also important to know: all certified organic products are considered Non-GMO.

Chickens are naturally omnivores. But we do have non-mealworm treats such as Gourd I Love You and Chick Chick.

Our vitamin mineral supplement, Cluck’n Sea Kelp, is from Canada’s cool, crisp waters.

Both our New Chicks in Town and Healthy Hen Wellness are naural herbal blends.

Sometimes if chickens aren't familiar with something, they do not eat it. Chicken parents have had success mixing our herbal blends with their flock's favorite treat, feed, or food. For instance: sprinkling Cluck’n Sea Kelp on kitchen scraps, watermelon or scattering it on the ground for future scratching and pecking.

Typically, there is a two-year shelf life on our products and products are best when used within 90 days of opening the package.

It is recommended that all products are stored in a cool, dry location and away from extreme heat and direct sunlight. Keep grains, seeds, herbs and powders away from moisture to reduce spoilage.

Introduce new treats and feeds gradually and give your flock access to grit to aid digestion. As for our treats, serve up a palm full (about to ¼ cup) per adult bird as a daily treat. When molting, add supplements to your feed. For chicks, give 1-2 pinches daily. Serve with chick grit and access to fresh water.

You can hand feed treats, scatter them on the ground or incorporate them into a high quality layer feed. Herbs, supplements and blends can be added to feed as well.

Please note that our treats aren't meant to replace your flock's layer feed - they're a healthy snack for your flock.

The question should be: what birds should you NOT feed these to?

Treats for Chickens’ treats and supplements are natural products that are safe for all domestic fowl. All our products contain a variety of sized ingredients for any sized beak or bill. So have at it and share!

Glad you asked!! We are making efforts to connect with a USA based grower of Certified Organic dried mealworms.

Currently, mealworms are from China. The USDA and CCOF inspect our products to assure their quality and safety.

You might also notice that mealworms vary in color and size. The way they are raised and dried depends on their size and color.

Mealworms have been the go-to protein treat for chickens, but the black soldier fly larvae is a growing interest ingredient. Both should be fed in moderation as too much calcium and protein can lead to decreased egg laying and health problems.

FAQ: Misc.

That would be fun, but no, we do not sell any live chickens.

But, when you get them we know just the place for all their health and happiness needs/wants (hint hint).

To add to your flock or start new, check with your local farm and feed store, the Craigslist.org farm and garden section, look up for your local 4H groups and/or google hatcheries for the closest location as many ship right to your door.
