When should you feed Dried Calci Worms to Wild Birds?
Birds adore Dried Calci Worms as they provide a valuable and nutritious source of food. Calci Worms are a favourite of garden birds all year round, though they are particularly popular in winter and summer when their energy requirements increase.
In summer wild birds are very active buildings nest & raising their young and in winter they need nutritious food to stay warm, Dried Calci Worms provide the ideal food to give the birds at this time.
Many wild birds eat insects as part of their natural diet, so feeding Dried Calci Worms mimics this behaviour.
Dried Calci Worms can be fed as a treat or can be mixed in with other seed or suet pellets. Also if required you can soak the Dried Worms in water for 15 to 20 minutes to re-hydrate them, which will make them easier for the birds to digest. This is particularly useful for young birds and fledglings
