Chickens love mealworms so much that they will go crazy trying to peck up every bit. Mealworms are high in protein and also contain needed vitamins and minerals that help your hens remain happy and healthy. Chickens with good protein lay high-quality, healthy eggs. However, your birds will most likely like them too much, so it’s important to feed them in moderation. Too much protein can lead to weight gain which will not only lead to your hens having a harder time laying eggs, but also lead to fewer eggs laid. One or two beakfuls are enough no matter what your chickens say.
Because chickens love mealworms so much, they will spend extra time pecking and scratching at the ground to make sure that they have gotten every last bit, keeping them active and healthy. It can also help to mix up the bedding in their coop because they’ll be rummaging through it to find the tasty morsels.
These are also good treats for training your chickens. It keeps their attention when they are expecting a yummy reward for following what you tell them.
