My babies are now 10 days old. They are thriving well.
I have been treating them to earthworms from the yard (so funny to watch!), mealworms, and I bought a bag of crickets from the pet store, scrambled eggs, raw oats a treat or two a day when we sit with them. - is this all ok?
Do i need to give them "grit"? they are on chick starter - non medicated.
I put a box with (clean) sand in it, in the brooder, I thought they would like to dust bathe.. well, they love the box and all cram in it.. but to eat the sand! Is that bad? Just like kids at the playground.. eating the dang sand. I took the box out, till I could consult you all LOL.
They are just so friendly and sweet. When I sit with them, they climb all over me and coo and sleep and well, poop haha I have so much extra laundry now... lol
