454g (1lb) Chubby Mix (Mealworm & Black Soldier Fly Larvae Combo)
We are mixing it up here at Chubby with a combination of our great tasting Mealworms and our new Black Soldier Fly Larvae.
This mix is sure to enrich your pet's (or wild bird's) diet giving them a boost of Protein and Calcium in one handy mixed bag.
We all know why our pets love our great tasting Mealworms, but what about our new Black Soldier Fly Larvae?
Chubby Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae are comparable to dried mealworms but have a much higher nutritional value. They have 23 to 61 times more calcium than other commonly fed feeder insects and naturally feature a 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. Lack of calcium can result in poor laying, soft shells and can cause behaviour problems such as egg eating as the chicken tries to recoup the much-needed calcium. Feeding Black Soldier Fly Larvae as a treat is an excellent way to increase these vital nutrients and we can assure you, they will soon become a favourite!
Despite carrying a somewhat aggressive sounding name, they are harmless and wen alive do not bite. During its larva phase, which lasts a few weeks, it feeds off various kinds of organic material, converting this to proteins. The adult fly is able to entirely live off the nutritional reserves it had built up as a larva. This is why Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae have such a high nutritional value.
A whole variety of animals love the natural goodness in all our 'Chubby' products including wild birds, reptiles, fish, hedgehogs, budgies, sugar gliders and many more. Although you can buy live Black Soldier Fly Larvae, dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae are just as good with the added benefit of easy and long-lasting storage. Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae are also a lot better for anyone that is squeamish!

Arrived in great time, and my hens love the treats, especially during these cold winter months. Highly recommend
I got this as a supplement for our free range laying hens. I chose the mix because I liked the idea of high protein to help with feather growth during a molt along with high calcium so that their eggs hopefully don't suffer. So far they love them! They run out of their coop in the morning to get what I scatter on the ground...time will tell if it helps their feathers, but I will be ordering more for sure!
Good product. I use it to feed my fish (Asian Arowana) but the meal worms are a lot smaller than I expected, the black fly larvae were big tho! All in all very happy, I'll buy other feeds in the future.
Hello! Rock & Roll the Hen lives with her sister in their pen. When they first encountered the hanging/swinging treat dispenser toy, they weren't sure what to do with it. But when one peck resulted in a treat falling out, they both looked surprised as they realized HEY THIS THING IS PRETTY COOL! And they love the chubby mealworm and black fly larvae treats!
Excellent product. My chickens love it.
