GRUBS | THE FUTURE OF FEED
As the need for sustainably produced food increases, insects play a vital role in providing protein-rich nutrients that minimize environmental impact. Grubs (Black Soldier Fly Hermetia illucens) are raised on pre-consumer food waste which would otherwise end up in landfills, then turned into powerhouse nutrition for your flock.
Tasty and nutritious, our grubs are 100% natural, have up to 40% protein, and are rich in calcium, vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids. Formulating feed with grub protein supplies your flock with a nutritional experience you can feel good about.
By purchasing this bag of feed you will save 16.4 lbs of food waste from entering a landfill. That’s the weight of 120 eggs!

What is Grub Protein?
Our GRUB Protein is simply our GRUBS, whole black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens).
Do I still need to feed grit?
Yes, grit is a required feeding supplement, no matter the feed form! Cluckin’ Good Poultry Grit is necessary for the healthy development of a chicken’s gizzard. The gizzard aids in digestion and allows for a maximum nutrient benefit from their feed. Grit is made up of insoluble crushed quartzite or granite, grit remains in the bird’s gizzard to help with digestion. Grit is an essential part of your bird’s diet and should always be provided.
Do I still need to feed oyster shell?
Yes. Cluckin’ Good Oyster Shell is an excellent source of calcium to increase egg shell strength for laying poultry. Our feeds are formulated with added calcium however different birds (just like people and their vitamins), may require higher levels of calcium. Oyster shell is not a substitute for grit.
Can I ferment my pellets?
Fermentation is only recommended for our whole grain feeds.
Which is more nutritious – pellets or whole grains?
Both formulations contain the same high-quality ingredients to meet the nutritional requirements for laying chickens and ducks. The only difference is the form – pellets with added grub protein versus whole grain. Leave it up to your flock to decide which they prefer!
