    My chicks are 3 weeks old now and I was wondering if I could give them blueberries?

    Yes, you can try giving them blueberries now. Don't overdo it, though, since their main feed should still be commercial chick feed. It would also be a good idea to offer them some chick grit so that they can digest the tougher blueberries correctly.

    x2. They'll need the grit to help digest the berries.
