Dried Calci Worms (black soldier fly larvae) are another treat like mealworms that your chickens will love, but with a higher nutritional value! They have 23 to 61
times more calcium than other commonly-fed feeder insects like mealworms, and naturally
well balanced calcium-phosphorus ratio. Research has shown that natural
feed with balanced Ca:P ratios increases animal health and contributes
to stronger bones and shiny feathers.
Calcium is especially important for laying
birds such as chickens. A lack of calcium can result in poor laying,
soft shells and can even cause behavior problems such as egg eating.
The reason Black Soldier Fly larvae are so nutritious for your bird is that the adult fly is able to entirely live off
the nutritional reserves it had built up as a larva--so during the larva phase, they have to build up some pretty incredible nutritional stores. Chubby-brand Dried Calci Worms are 100% natural and farmed under GMP (good
manufacturing practice) conditions.Typical Analysis:
