As one of the staple foods in an exotic bird's diet, insects are a main stay of providing "animal protein".
Meal worms supply a good source of B vitamins especially B12, as well as biotin for strong feathers, an excellent source of calcium and even more so of magnesium!
We include meal worms in our BirD-elicious! Origins Wild Diet!™ species-specific foods!
We also feed meal worms as a delicious treat to our birds to boost their protein supplementation as well as their magnesium levels.
These contain about 47% crude protein, 25% crude fat, 6% crude fiber and 5% moisture on a dry weight basis.
Simply sprinkle them on top of your bird's food or mix in with any mash or puree for a yummy and nutritious treat!
