    Well, my chicks are outside in their coop with a dog kennel to sleep in (and heat lamp). Yesterday, my dd was hunting worms for them and THEY GOBBLED [​IMG] them up. We had some corn on the cob for dinner and we took the lefy over out to them, and they, at first, were a bit not sure. I put the cob in with them for the night and by this am it was pecked clean. I hope I'm not doing anything wrong giving them new foods??

    I dont think bugs are bad as that is protein and the mom would give them that in the wild when they first come out right? but corn I dont know about sorry
