The late Spring and continuing rain in 2013 is exacerbating the problem and there are many hungry chicks whose parents cannot feed them properly for lack of natural food. Chicks cannot be fed nuts or hard food, so soft live meal worms are the best alternative to the real thing.
I have been buying these meal worms all 'Spring' on a very regular basis to help parents feed their chicks. They are devoured within minutes of putting them out, attracting starlings, great tits, blue tits, robins, blackbirds, goldfinches, and thrushes.
I place them in a feeder I bought on this site, which is great for preventing larger birds getting at the food and also keeps the worms in one place, as they have a tendency to wriggle away. This is the link to the bird feeder http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0030MMJCM/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I would recommend these meal worms because it is the only large size I have found at 1kg and is the best value. They arrive in a white sack filled with newspaper and an extra bag of sawdust to feed the worms. I keep it in the garden shed and once opened use one of those large food bag clips which seals it tight to prevent escape. Be careful that the worms don't eat their way out of the sack if you are not using them up quickly. It may be a good idea to place them in a bin liner to catch any escapees.
Highly recommended as essential for baby chicks who need soft food and a must for serious naturalists who value our British birds.
this order as described and arrived in a large sack , with what I assume was food for them ,on arrival I suggest you unpack them I divided them into two large plastic containers , newspaper is in the sack divide this as well as well as the small bag of what looks like sawdust and make sure you have lids for containers ,keep them cool ,I have placed them in paper container of my recycle bin [ My wife gets squeamish with Live Mealworms in the house , so to keep the peace they appear to be ok in the recycle bin . storage ideal but remember the mess when dividing into containers as they can be stuck to paper so , I would do the dividing outside .
Im converting these mealworms into baby Sparrow...their Mums and Dads think there great food especially in this cold wet spring weather
They would get through a kilo a day if I put them out !
A big thank you from me and the 'Spuggies '
i breed them to supplement my chickens diet.
would like to know if these beetles can fly. i know some varieties can and some cant.
i keep them in rolled oats (few inches deep) and give them carrot peelings, apple cores, stale bread etc. they seem very active and happy.
