Mealworms are the larval form of the darkling beetle.
Mealworms are a healthy, nutritious snack that are full of protein.
Plus Mealworms are a strong source of other nutrients for your chickens that helps to give them the energy needed for molting.
Mealworms contain 12 of the 16 elements found in living tissues.
They’re high in vitamins A and B which are essential for tissue growth, in this case, feathers and eggs.
