INGREDIENTS: Dried 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: Scatter on the ground for foraging or place in a feeder. This product is a treat and is not a substitute for a regular, balanced diet. 

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.

All insects products are inspected by the FDA, USDA, and US Fish & Wildlife when being imported to assure their quality and safety. We are FDA approved, and provide a nutritious diet you can trust.

I have 18 birds of various breeds. Mostly hens, and several roosters, all of different ages. All my birds enjoy the Black Soldier Fly.

Chickens are so happy. Love these and they are more economical than the meal worms -Kimberlee L Z.

Regrettably, my chickens barely touch the product. The color of my shipment is black mostly and I think that had to do with the processing. The meal worms I feed my chickens are golden and not burnt looking. - Frederick M.

[Response from Seller: Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear that your chickens did not enjoy the Black Soldier Fly Larvae as much as the mealworms. Please reach out to our friendly customer service team using the link at the bottom of the website for assistance. We hope to hear from you soon!]

These are the best value anywhere. I made the mistake of buying from someone else once. I won't do it again. This is a good quality product at a great price. - Marcia F.

Hello, These BSF are flatter than others. Chickens still love them. Maybe they are dried differently? Also this company is very reliable so far. Many thanks to all! -Adele W.

Purchased dried soldier fly larvae and mealworm larvae. Delivery was quick. Can't vouch for the taste, but the birds keep coming back for more, so they must love them! I'll buy it again when I run out!

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.

High in protein and calcium...a fantastic treat for my chickens...and they love them! Great quality and a great value. -Patricia C.

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.

Lots of bugs! My opossum loves them as a treat that I hand feed or mix with mashed banana and steamed carrots

Bought this product for my chickens. Very happy that this calcium treat has helped with their eggshell texture and new feather growth. Highly recommend
