I have six chicks they are about a week old and they are doing just fine. While I was outside splitting wood this morning I found a nest of carpenter ants some dead some alive probably about a 1/4 cup. I scooped them up and brought them inside. I was wondering if I could give them to my chicks. They are currently on a medicated starter feed with water and a probiotic water supplement. I know some ants can be toxic. I think my chicks might like the "treat" but I don't want to hurt them by accident.
