Is it ok to give chicks mealworms?
You can, yes. But make sure when you feed them anything other than chick starter that you feed them grit as well, to help them digest it. If you cannot find chick grit coarse sand will work just as well.
It's very entertaining to watch them play tag with the worm.
If you want to see something funny toss a live cricket in there The funniest I've seen so far was with 2 house chicks we raised once. They were loose in the lounge and a moth flew across the floor, just high enough and fast enough to be chased by the chicks, but stay out of their reach. They both chased it around, but one of the chicks had it's eye on the moth and the other one was chasing the moth's shadow on the floor, trying to catch that. I wish I had a video of that!
I will try to find a cricket
