Mealworms

Order arrived promptly, thanks

Superb quality and service

Birds go chirruping mad for these Chubby mealworms and the fat balls too! I always moisten the mealworms for our birds in spring and summer when they have young. With the fat balls, I use a fat ball holder but I also put several in a bag and pop them on top of a radiator and when they’ve warmed through they’re then soft enough to crumble and scatter on the ground. All the birds get a look in then and everything is munched so there’s positively no waste - ever!
