    Yes I would like to know if it would be okay for Baby Chick's to peck at? They are 2 1/2 weeks old and very lively.

    I would say just make sure they have chick grit and you are ok. Note, NOT parakeet grit or pet bird grit. They add calcium to that and it can OD the chicks and damage their organs.
