500g Chubby Dried Calci Worms
Chubby Dried CalciWorms 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 the Calci worms 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, it is harmless and cannot 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. Our Dried CalciWorms are 100% natural and farmed under GMP (good manufacturing practice) conditions.
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 calci worms, dried calci worms are just as good with the added benefit of easy and long lasting storage. Dried Calci Worms are also a lot better for anyone that is squeamish!

perfect - the garden is full birds whenever we put them out - a pleasure
I use a lot of mealworms, so thought I'd try these for a change. They're definitely going down well with the local starling mob! I was also pleased - there is no dust in the bag and the bag was well packaged for delivery and it arrived very quickly, too!
Excellent product and excellent value.
