Dried Calci-Yum Worms (black soldier fly larvae) offer your pets an all natural calcium rich treat. Black soldier fly larvae are considered the best new alternative for incorporating calcium and protein into an animal's diet. During its larva phase, the black soldier fly feeds off various kinds of organic material, converting this to proteins. This is why Calci-Yum Worms have such a high nutritional value. Excellent source of protein and calcium for chickens, guinea hens, ducks, turkeys, robins, sparrows and other wild birds.

  • High in protein to support strong and healthy growth.
  • Naturally sun-dried to maintain their nutritional value
  • Store for a year or longer, no refrigeration necessary! 
  • Can be offered straight or mixed with other foods to make a custom blend. Place in a feeder or sprinkle on the ground to encourage natural foraging behavior.
  • Suggested forage toys to put treat inside: HERE

Healthy treats have several benefits for both pets and pet owners. Treats can lend variety to an otherwise monotonous diet, provide good exercise for teeth and jaws, and add behavioral enrichment for animals that spend their lives in a small, limited environment. Most importantly, treats form a connection between pets and pet owners, assisting in bonding and training.

INGREDIENTS: Black Soldier Fly Larvae (Hermetia illucens) 

GUARANTEED ANALYSIS: crude protein (min) 45%, crude fat (min) 35%, crude fiber (max) 8%, moisture (max) 8%, calcium (min) 3%.

FEEDING RECOMMENDATION: This product is a treat and should be fed sparingly, it is not a substitute for a regular, balanced diet. Offer treats 2-3 times per week or as a small portion (less than 10%) of the main diet. Treats may lead to health issues like obesity when overfed. If your pet is not consuming its regular balanced diet, withhold serving treats until stable eating habits resume.

IMPORTANCE OF CALCIUM: 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 because a lack of it can result in poor laying, soft shells, and can cause behavior problems such as egg eating as the bird tries to recoup the much needed calcium.

I love the convenience of the product and the health benefits for my chickens. Unfortunately chickens were not impressed at all! Kind of like getting kids to eat spinach! -Matt P.

I purchased these worms for my chickens. I had been feeding them regular meal worms and oyster shell as a source of calcium, as well as chicken food with added calcium and omega 3. Despite that, their egg shells were getting thin. Once I started using the calci-yum worms I noticed a definite improvement in the thickness of the shells. The chickens love them too. -Maria Z.

Great for training our guinea hens to come back to the coop at dusk. We also use them with our chickens, especially when molting. They love the treat and the extra protein helps them to get through the molt with less stress. - Cynthia S.

My hens love these! It took a while for them to acquire a taste for them, but now, they’re happy with them! I like the fact that they also provide calcium, in addition to other good nutrients. Thank you! -Jenny C.

My blue bird & other birds will not even take more than one bite. It's so bad even the squirrels won't eat them. I cannot imagine that only my birds & squirrels don't like this product. Should be advertised as chick feed not blue bird food. -Cathy H.
