The calcium-packed treat that chickens love!
CityChick "DoGood" Grubs are the perfect, nutritional snack for your feathered friends. "Do good" for your chickens by giving them a healthy treat that you can feel great about while you "do good" for the planet!
"DoGood" for your chickens:
Dried black soldier fly larvae contain up to 50% more calcium than mealworms! The extra calcium boost found in the black soldier fly larvae will help your chickens produce nice strong eggshells! Did you know that chicken feathers are 90% protein? DoGood Grubs are packed with feather-building protein.
Chickens LOVE to eat bugs! Chickens are omnivores. Supplement your chicken's diet with some DoGood Grubs to help satisfy their natural instinct!
DoGood Grubs from CityChick are sourced from the United States. No need to worry about where your chicken's treat came from.
*May contain small amounts of melon and or winter squash seeds. These seeds are safe for your chickens to eat.
"DoGood" for the planet:
Almost every poultry treat on the market comes in a plastic bag. Most of those plastic bags will end up in a landfill where the bag can take several years to break down. After your chickens finish their CityChick "DoGood" Grubs, simply toss your bag into the compost bin or into the trash. You'll feel great knowing that you've helped the planet after your chickens enjoyed their treats. Guess what? That beautiful CityChick label is ALSO fully compostable.
CityChick DoGood Grubs are black soldier fly larvae that are cultivated from pre-consumer, animal feed-grade food waste. Instead of going to a landfill, food waste is collected from grocery stores, restaurants, and food production facilities. The black soldier flies are harvested from this landfill-bound food waste.
Black soldier fly larvae feed on this typically landfill-bound food waste and are then harvested and dried to preserve as many of the nutritive properties as possible. One pound of black soldier fly larvae can keep up to 10 pounds of food waste from going to a landfill!
"DoGood" for the Community:
For 2021, CityChick will donate $1 from every bag of "DoGood" Grubs sold to the Wylde Center located in Decatur, GA. Wylde Center was founded in 1997 out of a need to provide opportunities to experience nature in an urban environment. As a result of the community’s involvement and commitment, the organization has evolved into a large and active nonprofit organization operating five greenspaces (Oakhurst Garden, Sugar Creek Garden, Hawk Hollow, Edgewood Community Learning Garden, and the Mulberry Fields Garden) in four different Decatur and Atlanta neighborhoods, open year-round for the community, for events and for Wylde Center’s educational programs.
Directions for feeding:
CityChick DoGood Grubs are a treat and should be used along with a complete feed. In general, two tablespoons or a small handful per chicken a day is recommended. A one-pound bag will generally last a small flock of 3- 4 chickens one month.
Store your extra DoGood Grubs in a dry, cool place for optimal freshness.
