The Nitty Gritty on Mealworm Delight®
TIPS FOR USE
Here’s what you need to do: Fling, scatter or sprinkle treats on the ground to encourage natural foraging, scratching, and pecking! Or hand feed your feathered friends to engage in friendship and trust. Mealworm Delight has been known to teach chickens tricks, stimulate bonding + interaction, and even get the unruliest chickens back into the coop when it's time.
Here’s what you need to do: Treats for Chickens agrees that healthy chicken treats can be fed in moderation along with a complete chicken feed. Treats should be no more than 10% of your flock’s diet which looks like a palm full of Mealworm Delight, per chicken, per day. A little less in the Summer months and a tad more for the sake of useful heat generating calories during Winter months.
Is Mealworm Delight chick age appropriate? For the first couple of weeks, your chicks will need to start with chick mash or our Chick Chick. It’s essentially just a ground-up version of chick feed - it’s small so that it fits into their tiny little beaks!
General Pro-Chick Tip: be sure that baby chicks under two weeks of age always have access to grit so they can properly digest their food.
*Note: Currently, dried mealworms are a product of China.

Reviews From Pet Chicken Parents
As always, thank you for sharing! Treats for Chickens’ chicken parents rely on your honest feedback. -Dawn 🧡
My flock loves your Mealworm Delight! I have to put in at least four or five different spots to be sure all of the hens (and roosters) are able to get their fair share. In a matter of minutes, they have devoured every last worm and are usually looking for more. In the colder months, I give our flock quite a bit more, as they’re not able to forage, since they all free range. I have a healthy and happy flock and appreciate what you do, and the attention you pay to chickens’ dietary requirements along with what they love to eat. I am grateful for your small business and am a very satisfied and happy customer!
My flock of 12 are absolutely in love with treats for chicken. They see the bags and get super loud and excited. The chicken crack really lives up to it's name. My ladies have beautiful healthy feathers and their eggs have a solid perfect texture. Thanks for keeping them healthy. They eat the chicken crack, meal worms, cluck yea!, and pullet together. They are fancy ladies!
Everything was as advertised and arrived in a timely manner with even some extra sample goodies in the bargain. I would recommend to my friends.
I was using a different brand and I decided to give these a try. My girls liked the other brand alright but I noticed a big difference after trying these mealworms. They LOVED these mealworms. I have since switched over to Mealworm Delight and haven't looked back. I think the girls would concur.
I have been buying this for awhile and the girls love their worms. I love supporting a small woman owned company and how much they care about our flock. Just the best. I promise if it wasn't good I would let ya know.
