    I need to know what snacks I can feed my chicks and when I can start. I have 2 and 3 week old chicks. I gave them each a cheerio today and they went wild. I would like to start giving them treats once in a while just to make their little lives more interesting!

    TIA!

    I just gave mine some crickets, from the pet store, today. That was very intertaining! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks, that's a great list!!

    When can chicks have all that stuff? I would imagine they would need to be started slowly on any treats so they don't get diarrhea.

    * Personally, I think the cheerios were the best treat idea I've heard. [​IMG]
