Bread for chicks?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

 I would like to start feeding my chicks bread along with there 20% protein grit. I already have chickens and give them a loaf a day and they love it. Also, I can just go to my bread store and pick up a trash bag of bread for 5 bucks(:weee),  so you can see why I might want to feed my chicks bread.  Also my chicks are a month old if that might help you answer my question.

hi,

 they will need to be fed the proper size grit for their age. I get mine at agway. here's a pdf which explains grit, its importance,  and the 2nd page has a feeding schedule.
