We will be buying more for sure. Great price, super fast shipping and the chickens and waterfowl love them. I bought this because it adds a variety to there diet. Great protein for the hen's. Highly recommended and I will be a long time customer. I also highly recommend the EZ Worms as well which I will be reviewing as well. Only negative is these beetles are smell is not great and strong but it does come in a resealable package. The birds don't mind at all LoL -Jessica R

Fed these smelly beetles to the chickens, ducks, Guinea fowl and turkeys. So far they have all turned their beaks up. They all absolutely loved the dried black soldier fly larvae!! We are going to keep trying the stinky beetles, we have mixed them with the black soldier fly larvae for the ducks. The ducks aren’t as finicky. -Alicia D.

I agree with Julia S. The smell makes me wrinkle my nose but our flock of ducks think these are great. Our dogs like to go out and see if the ducks left any behind. We mix them with dried black soldier fly larveae and the ducks are very willing to follow us anywhere when they see the container in our hands. If anybody asks, how do you train a duck? Beetles and dried bug larvae!

Second purchase. Ducks love them! -Crow H.

by D.rouse1 on February 24, 2022

I got a wide variety of different dried bugs for my chickens. They are crazy for the crickets and mealworms. They do like the beetles, but they will definitely love the others more so. I can honestly say, there is not 1 pc of any of these left after they are done. Thank you so much for making such a great quality product that is affordable. -Desirae R.

My chickens really love beetles. -Maria N.

I ordered this because the description said that 'chickens love them.' I give my girls a protein treat twice a day during the cold of winter here in Vermont. What I have found is that the chickens go for the black soldier fly larvae and mealworms first, spitting out the beetles. They do come back and eat them when the other treats are gone. I'm going to stick with the black soldier fly larvae and mealworms in the future. -Mary Ann C.
