This is like candy for chickens. They come running when I shake the can. It’s a great treat for them especially in winter when insects are hard to come by outside! -Sherrie S.


Our gliders like these. Just wished your prices could be a little lower. -Arthur F.


Awesome, but for the first time I received canned crickets from the brand ZooMed in my exotic nutrition mail. Not sure why they did this, but I was a little disappointed. -Kyla C.

[Response from Seller: Thank you for your feedback! Exotic Nutrition Canned Insects are occasional substituted for another brand whenever necessary, but we will be sure to have more of the original ENC brand in again soon!]


They are defiantly creepy looking but they come with a spoon so you don't have to touch them. I store them in the container in the fridge to make them last longer. I'm assuming my squirrel likes them because when I wake up in the morning they are gone. -Morgan B.
