My six week old chicks are doing very well. I've had them on the starter/grower (available night and day) but have been giving them treats of a few handfuls of whole grain rolled oats. Not the quick or instant kind. They come racing over to the gate when they see me coming because they love it so much. Will it spoil them so that they don't want their crumbles anymore? I was planning to keep them on the recommended diet. I want them healthy but happy too! BTW there are 12 of them. I was also wondering if I can give them wild bird feed as a treat? These are the first chickens I have ever had and by now at only 6 weeks old they look like miniature adult chickens (almost). Maybe that is making me unsure because they don't look like babies anymore. Thanks everyone!
