1Kg Chubby Dried Mixes
We are mixing it up here at Chubby with a combination of our great-tasting Mealworms and 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 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 behavour problems such as egg eating as the chicken tries to recoup the much-needed calcium. Feeding BSFL as a treat is an excellent way to increase these vital nutrients and we can assure you, they will soon become a favourite!
Calci –worms are in fact the larvae of the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens). Despite carrying a somewhat aggressive-sounding name, they are harmless and when 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 CalciWorms 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 BSFLworms are just as good with the added benefit of easy and long-lasting storage. Dried BSFL are also a lot better for anyone that is squeamish!
