    I was wondering if I cut up apple peels and apples into small pieces, could I give it to my baby chicks.

    Yes. Make sure there are no sprays on them. Wash and rinse carefully.

    Yes, but they might not be interested in it. The things I found they liked (and ate) that early was plain yogurt, meat scraps, and bread. They mostly ignored any greens I gave them, but started to eat grass and clover around eight weeks old. Since they shouldn't eat a lot of yogurt, bread or meat scraps, I just didn't give them that many treats that early. Usually they walked up and stole a part of my sandwich while they spent a little time outside. They thought they were so sneaky! [​IMG]
