    my new chickies seem to be doing great, all appear to be happy and healthy. My garden is producing tons of cherry tomatoes, almost faster than I can harvest and some are splitting before I can get to them all. I thought the chicks might appreciate a few of these, if not now then real soon. When can I start giving them occasional treats? I have chick grit but have not begun to feed it to them yet since they have been only on thier starter feed. Do I need to make sure they get grit a day or two before I add any treats?

    Oh, and yogurt. Is that generally only used when chicks need extra nourishment (sick/wounded) or is that a good supplemental thing for them? If its a regular addition, when can that be added?

    Appreciate your help, I'm such a newbie and a confessed perfectionist, so I'm wanting to make sure I do everything JUST RIGHT.

    Silly me! [​IMG] I just found the "Good treats for baby chicks" thread and had my questions answered. Sorry I posted before searching a little more.
