    i have 21 birds, 6 adults, 10, 6 week old 5, 3+ week old, all but the babies get treats, im taking the little peeps out for some air and sunshine today wondered if blueberrys , wild balck raspberrys , banana peels along with kale and clover i usually give the bigger chicks, (in tiny amts of course) my bigger birds and chicks have never had fruit?

    They will love you forever! Be sure to stand back because when they realize how delicious the treats are, you might get trampled by the chicken herd! [​IMG]

    Be sure to give them grit to help them to digest those treats.
