    I dont want to feed them anything that will hurt them. What if any treats can i give them? This is my first time having Sebrights.

    Quote:3 week olds can have pretty much have the same treats as older birds. Just remember small quantities, small pieces, and you will need to supply them with grit for digestion.
    Specifically yogurt and oatmeal are fine.

    Have fun,

    Boiled Eggs ( Shells off ) Scrambled Egg, Meal Worms, just about anything! My chick's favorite treat was boiled eggs! They went nutty for'em!

    My 4 week old chicks spend their days in a dirt run where they can pick up grit. I introduced them to a variety of foods and found they like thawed frozen peas, diced raw yellow or green squash, watermelon, halved or quartered grapes (depending on size), diced tomato, and the tip of a raw ear of corn - two to three inches worth. They turned up their beaks at nectarines, peaches and half an orange. It is great fun watching them eyeball new treats and then grabbing and running with them!

    Yes oatmeal and yogert are perfectly fine to give them.

    other treats you can give:
    1.)watermellon
    2.)smashed boiled egg (w/o shell)
    3.)scrambled eggs
    4.)Meal worms

    The only fruit / vegetable that is toxic for them (that I know of) is Avacado & Potato peelings


    Just remember to provide grit for them. [​IMG]
