Description

Kaytee Meal Worm Wild Bird Food is a delicious 100% mealworm treat that provides an excellent source of protein for wild birds. This high-energy food source is a favorite among bluebirds, wrens, robins, chickadees, woodpeckers, cardinals and many songbirds that are hard to attract with the average seed blend. Dried mealworms have the nutritional value of live mealworms and are more convenient to feed. You can use them alone in a feeder or mix them with your favorite wild bird seed.

  • Omega-3 fatty acids support healthy heart, brain and eye function
  • High protein content gives birds plenty of sustained energy
  • Mealworms are an important food source for baby birds that aid in proper growth

  • Great treat

    By on

    I actually bought these for my two pet chickens who are in a large enclosure outdoors. They need additional nutrition in the winter and the mealworms provide extra protein when bugs and worms are in short supply. At first I thought the contents wouldn't last long, but I've found just a small handful is a generous snack which makes it well worth the money. I would definitely buy this product again and Chewy.com has affordable prices, quick delivery time, and great service.

  • The birds and the ducks gobble this up.

    By on

    I have put mealworms out twice before but only had a small bag. They were gone in a couple of days. I looked for larger bags at my local pet and feed stores but they only carried small bags. I was pleased to see that chewy carried large bags. I ordered a larger bag and it lasted longer. I have a lot of woodpeckers, large and small, eating them. Will order more.

  • I don’t have the right birds

    By on

    The little Toies and finches and doves don’t really eat these they pick at the seed around the worms. I tossed a few at some mockingbirds but they didn’t seem interested either. Sad face. I wonder if the ravens would like them?

  • Bluebirds Come Rushing!

    By on

    I put two trays of these out every morning. As a result, I have a backyard full of bluebirds. The mockingbirds also love them, and I catch cardinals snacking on them. Even the squirrels eat them. I'm not too pleased about that.

  • My Starling loves these

    By on

    I currently have a wild starling that I am caring for due to the fact that its wing was injured and it will no longer be able to fly due to the severity of the injury. It loves these mealworms it won't eat anything else. For being a starling you would think it wouldn't be a picky eater but this feather baby is a very picky eater.

  • Bluebirds LOVE this!

    By on

    My bluebirds love this! Aside from being light (which is simply what mealworms are), these are perfect! They are also attracting red-winged blackbirds, which we normally don't see in our yard.

  • Bluebirds, Robins and Carolina Wrens love these worms!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I do not know how the overall quality of these mealworms compares to other brands that Chewy offers as Kaytee is the only brand that I have tried to date. I have never seen so many Bluebirds at my feeders before offering mealworms though so I am very happy with the results. The Robin likes to squat at the open mesh platform feeder and it runs every other bird off. I am going to offer mealworms in an additional hanging feeder that will allow all the other birds a chance to eat. Fortunately, Chewy helps us to keep all the birds with a steady supply of mealworms.

  • birds love 'em!

    Good stuff....according to the chickadees, the nuthatches, the blue birds and a few others we had no intention of feeding! :-) Much better price than our local bird store.

  • Not sure...the birds in our neighborhood are not fans

    By on

    I read so many amazing reviews for this and we have two bird feeders in our yard so I thought we would try it. It seems the birds in our neighborhood are not fans. Bird...worms...I was expecting so many new birds to show up but we have actually had less. Maybe the word hasn't gotten out yet but it has been out for a couple of weeks and not much is gone. If that changes, I will update this review.

  • Icky To Me But Tasty To Them

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    I put out mealworms for the wrens nesting in my yard and they now wait for me to fill their dish--see photo. I also put some in a bag, along with some sunflower seeds, to feed the wild chickens roaming at the end of my street and they now come running when they see me.
