Treats for chicks

Would crushed up fritos Corn chips be OK as a treat?

Too salty and poor nutrition - not to mention all the artificial ingredients, preservatives, color, etc..

 

They don't need treats if you want to raise healthy chicks that grow to their potential.

Adding things in addition to chick starter will alter the balanced nutrition contained therein.

Thank you, that's what they eat right now anyway, chick starter feed. It's funny watching them scratch it out of the dish.

This one prevents a lot of that.

However if you won't be raising chicks very frequently, I don't recommend buying a chick feeder.

 

This one is good as they can use it longer

Or just go to an adult feeder.

 

This one works great, easy to clean and also comes in a larger size.
