Cluckin’ Good Grubs are dried black soldier fly larvae, an environmentally friendly feed supplement or treat to be used in conjunction with our balanced animal feeds. They are grown in the Pacific Northwest, raised on traceable pre-consumer waste fruits, vegetables and grains that might otherwise go to a landfill. Cluckin’ Good Grubs are rich in protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, and are an excellent source of calcium. See our blog post, Bugs with a Mission for Better Nutrition, for more information on our Grubs.
Use of this product is compliant with the AWA program when used in accordance with the AWA standards.
Naturally Free Organic Starter Feed should be used from day 1 until approximately 8 weeks of age for laying birds. Broilers are recommended to switch at 4 weeks to the Organic Broiler with Corn. Be sure to offer Cluckin’ Good Chick Grit in their brooder as free choice or scattered in the bedding. Chick Grit is necessary for optimal gizzard development to aid in digestion and maximum nutrient absorption of the whole grains.
Please offer plenty of fresh water not directly next to starter feed to prevent “beak clumping”.
Some chicks may need to be shown how to eat and drink. To teach your chicks how to drink, carefully dip their beaks in water. Do the same with their starter feed so they can learn what food is.
Add Cluckin’ Good Chick Grit to their feed by sprinkling a little bit on top. Grit stays in the chick’s gizzard and helps them digest their food.
Ducklings can also eat Naturally Free Organic Starter! As ducklings mature at a different rate than chicks, we do recommend a slightly adjusted feeding schedule.
You can also boost the nutrients by fermenting your flock’s feed. Browse our Helpful Guides for more resources on how to use our feeds to optimize your flock’s health.
