My chicks are still only 5 weeks old but I thought I would ask this question so I am prepared. I read in one of my chicken books or online somewhere that you should not feed fruit to laying hens as it interrupts their eggs. From what I have read on this site it seems that many people feed their chickens fruit and vegetables. I just wanted clarification if this is okay to do. Also, at what age may I start giving them some fresh fruits and/or veggies? I so far have given them worms, grubs, boiled eggs, and oats for treats (I tried yogurt but they weren't interested). Also, I have two holly trees in my yard. Will they get horribly sick if (when) they eat the berries? Thanks!
