EDIT: some people do mashed up boiled egg if you want to try that

Yes! One of the chicks grabbed a piece of egg and ran around showing it off so Mildred (my sick chick) went over and got some too! They ate it all up👍🏼

She's still being weird though😕

Yes, no pasty butt. She's just acting really weird making that chirpy/cricket sound CONSTANTLY and standing with her neck tucked/head close to her body and just looks sad or sick. Idk how else to describe it☹️
She's just not being normal. I can't figure it out, it's driving me crazy!
