    Mealworms, fresh spinach, plain yoghurt, whole grain or brown bread, cooked rice (not too salty), cooked pasta (ditto)... Just make sure they get grit to help them digest it. If you can't get chick grit sprinkle some coarse sand over their food or give them some soil to scratch and peck in if they're inside all the time.

    We always fed our chicks tender butter green lettuce. They always love oatmeal too. Just remember when feeding them anything other than starter/grower food to provide chick grit as suggested. They will need it to aid in digestion.
