    We have 5 baby chicks that are about a week old, what kind of treats can I give them? Im looking for ways to bond with them as right now, they are all still pretty skiddish of us.

    I scramble eggs and mash them fine. I sprinkle a little on the floor and once they try it they want more. After a day or two I will have it in my hand and a few of them will get up the nerve to take it out of my hand. After a few days they will be climbing all over my hand trying to get a bite. ;)

    Hi, think I need to start giving grit if all I’m giving them as treats are HB eggs?
