    I have been giving my one week olds the starter crumbs, but is there anything else that they can have i.e. any veggies?

    Thanks

    There's really nothing else they 'need' right now, but there are a few things you can give them. Just remember that they are treats and use them in moderation. Hard boiled egg is good. Mash it up as fine as you can. Another favorite is meal worms. At this point, I dont think I'd give them vedgies, and deffinately stay away from bread. Also, make sure if you are feeding them anything other than their starter feed, that you provide grit at all times to aid their digestion.
