Can I give my 2 week old chicks apples and apple peels?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if I cut up apple peels and apples into small pieces, could I give it to my baby chicks.

In my house there are: 4 barred rocks, 4 welsummer bantams, 3 buff orpingtons, 6 rabbits (mini lops), 1 standard poodle, 1 leopard gecko.

Yes.  Make sure there are no sprays on them.  Wash and rinse carefully.

Yes, but they might not be interested in it. The things I found they liked (and ate) that early was plain yogurt, meat scraps, and bread. They mostly ignored any greens I gave them, but started to eat grass and clover around eight weeks old. Since they shouldn't eat a lot of yogurt, bread or meat scraps, I just didn't give them that many treats that early. Usually they walked up and stole a part of my sandwich while they spent a little time outside. They thought they were so sneaky! ;)

Dragons are a lot like cats. They sleep with one eye open, tail a-twitch, and will rain fiery death down upon you should you disturb them.
