Meal Worms - High In Protein & Great for Molting Chickens

Ahhh, fall! A time of beautiful foliage on the trees and fewer feathers on your birds. During the molt, chickens need a diet of higher protein to help their bodies produce more feathers. And eggs? Yeah - in any laying hen over the age of 9 months, you can expect far fewer (if any) eggs until they have finished molting and recovered fully.

While chickens love meal worms year-round, molting time is a great time to make sure your flock get plenty of this high-protein treat! Scratch grains average only about 8% protein but meal worms? Try 52% protein, babyyy! THAT is what your chickens need more of in order to thrive!
