Will wild birds eat dried instead of live mealworms?

Absolutely! Dried mealworms are much less expensive then live mealworms and are also easier to handle and store. However, if you are currently feeding live mealworms to birds, give the birds time to adjust to the new crispier version. Tip: Mix a few live with the dried for the first few days.

Do chickens really like dried mealworms?

Yes, yes, and yes! You will notice a big difference in a hen's reaction to mealworms compared to an offering of regular feed or scratch. Insects are a big part of what chickens spend their day scratching and pecking for and help provide a more complete diet for omnivorous birds like chickens. Mealworms are especially good to offer chickens during the molt when new feather growth will occur. However, mealworms should be offered as a treat for chickens and should not be considered a replacement for formulated chicken feed.
