 My Beetle’s Missing anttennas/Legs?

When I woke up this morning to check on my beetles and to feed em, i found at least 20 of them missing antenna’s and/or legs. It was insanely odd and I don’t understand what can be happening to them. Has this ever happened to anyone, and does anyone know the cause? I know i can’t do much to fix the problem, but I at least want to know the cause of this.

some will come deformed, try not to disturb them wen they are pupas, also make sure wen they are mealworms(or superworms) give them apples and other juicy friuts and veggies to keep them hydrated because wen they become beetles they are really thirsty
