    How old before they can have BOSS for treats? Thanks

    If they're like mine, I don't even think they'd be interested in it until they're old enough to eat it safely. There is no set age, but tiny chicks most likely won't eat it. As always suggested, make sure your birds have access to grit before they eat extras.

    Thank Teach, we have been giving mine grit, meal worms, greens and crickets since 4 or so weeks and they love all of it. They are about 6 weeks now and was just wondering if they are feady for boss yet. Guess I should have mentioned age in first post. Thanks for feedback.

    6 weeks is plenty old to try, but I'm skeptical that they'll eat it...lol. Sunflower hearts they might go for, but I'm thinking it'll be a few weeks before they go for BOSS...
