YUCK! Disgusting...
lol yeah i wouldnt want to eat one either, but the budgies and tiels go crazy for them!
they are only treats though as they are rich in protein....
when they have a pic-nic it is usually just a bowl of treats really, and it dosent happen often....
that pink dish has a flat bottom so what you see in it is virtually what you get, just a thin layer of treats...

I'm sure they are full of protein and part of their natural diet but I don't think I could ever touch one to feed them. Plus knowing Baby she's run like **** from any moving food..lol

I have seen barbeque flavour meal worms at a candy store I would never try them though. Yuck
lol!

yeah when you get them out, they are in a small plastic container mixed with oats (what they eat) and you keep them in the fridge... this makes them dormant and they dont move... you can get them out with your fingers or a spoon or something, my birds like to pick at the oats too so you wont have to sift through it all to pick out the worms...
then if you hold them in your hand they will wake and start crawling in a minute or two, but if you put them straight in the dish, the time it takes them to start moving will depend on how hot a day it is...
