Feeding Instructions

Grubblies are a healthy, all-natural snack to supplement your flock's diet. Feed by hand, or by scattering them on the ground to encourage natural foraging behavior. A 16 oz. bag feeds up to 5 chickens per month.

✓ For chicks, give a pinch or two daily starting at 3 weeks old to aid muscle development and feather growth.
✓ For chickens, ducks, turkeys, quail, and other feathered family, give a handful or two daily.
✓ Double serving when molting! Be sure to increase your flock’s protein intake with Grubblies to help regrow their feathers, and resume normal levels of energy and egg output.

With regularly scheduled refills, you’ll save 10% every time and never miss another snack time to keep your chickens healthy and happy.

Are Grubblies grown in China?
Absolutely not.

No! Grubblies are safely and sustainably harvested in the United States. While it would be much more affordable to import insects from China, we're dedicated to producing Grubblies at FDA-approved grub farms to ensure the highest levels of food safety and quality for our feathered families. In other words, everything from what our grubs eat (must be pre-consumer food waste) to how they’re dried (in a convection oven) is strictly regulated. Every batch is then tested for any potential contaminants and pathogens, and packaged with love for your fluffy family to enjoy. Plus with Grubblies, you’re providing a safe and sustainable protein that’s as healthy for the environment as it is for your chickens. In the USA alone, over 52 million tons of food is wasted before touching the end consumer every year. Our grubs recycle mountains of food waste into organic compost, reducing our nation’s landfill waste with every harvest. So every time you nourish your feathered family with Grubbly love, you’re showing love to our planet too.

My chickens are picky, what should I do?
Don’t worry, picky eaters will love Grubblies too.

Most chickens fall in Grubbly love immediately! If it’s not love at first peck, or second, or third… don’t worry, this is completely normal for many animals (just like dogs and cats). In fact, it’s more common for chickens to seem picky at first since they mostly eat by sight and patterns (with their taste buds at the back of their throat). A good rule of thumb for picky chickens is to give them about a week to transition to their new snack, slowly incorporating Grubblies into their current treats or feed. With a little bit of time and patience, your girls will go nuts for Grubblies! And you’ll begin to notice the difference in their eggs.

Are these mealworms?
Nope, they’re even healthier for your flock!

Nope! They’re a different insect, and they’re even healthier for your chickens. Grubblies are all-natural Black Soldier Fly grubs, harvested and oven-dried in the USA. While most mealworms are given as a “treat,” Grubblies are a nutritious snack (FDA-approved as a healthy feed ingredient) to help your flock grow healthier feathers and lay stronger eggshells. Similarly to mealworms, Grubblies are high in protein to help regrow feathers, especially important when molting. The key differences between the two insects are the calcium and phosphorous levels, which impact the health of your hens’ eggs. Grubblies have over 50x more calcium than mealworms to help produce stronger eggshells and prevent egg-binding. They're also the only insect in nature with the optimal ratio of calcium to phosphorous for chickens to fully absorb the nutrients. In other words, just one handful of Grubblies gives your flock more calcium than 5 pounds of mealworms. Plus, your flock will absorb the nutrients without the need for extra supplements like calcium dust or oyster shells. You’ll get more cluck for your buck with Grubblies!

Reducing Food Waste in the USA

Every year, over 52 millions tons of food is wasted in the USA without reaching the end consumer. As the food waste decomposes in a landfill, it releases methane, a greenhouse gas that’s over 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

The good news? Your flock’s Grubblies are as healthy for the environment as they are for your girls.

At Grubbly, we’re on a mission to nourish pets, while nurturing our planet. Our delicious, nutritious grubs are sustainably harvested, recycling mountains of food waste weekly that would otherwise end up in a landfill.

For every pound of Grubblies harvested in the USA, 10 pounds of food waste is recycled into organic compost!

So every time you nourish your feathered family with Grubbly love, you’re showing love to our planet too.

XO, Peck! -Team Grubbly
