Chickens, and all poultry, love and need insects in their everyday diet. They not only provide stimulation (chasing and catching them) but vital protein, calcium, amino acids and essential vitamins and nutrients that can only be found in animal products that aren’t necessarily found in commercially processed food. They are a great treat and source of natural fibre and extra protein, a requirement to grow healthy feathers during moulting.
Bainbridge Freeze Dried Insect Mix contains a variety of much loved and beneficial dried insects, including Dried Crickets, Dried Soldier Fly Larvae and Dried Mealworms.
Not only does freeze drying them mean that more nutrients are locked into these little, crunchy morsels of completely yummy (to poultry) goodness but they are free from the irradiation and microwaved processes that some pet keepers are wary of with imported products. Irradiation is a Government requirement of imported pet products, did you know that? Best of all, these babies are AUSTRALIAN GROWN on quality food.
Other fantastic benefits of these insects are –
* No preservatives
* No additives
* No added nasties
* Ziplock bag for easy for resealable, everyday access
* Australian owned business and Australian grown on quality food.
Suitable for all poultry, caged birds, turtles, fish, lizards and wild birds.
Feed them out by hand to tame up your birds, leave them out as they would be found in nature or hide them in grass (whilst free ranging) – however you see fit… they’ll love you for it!
