    Ok, I have a questions. My friend says her month old chicks love to eat on the guinea pig garden mix of food? It has like small alfafa pellets, seeds, carrot bits and God knows what else. Whatcha think? She says they love it. I was just concered about the seeds, but I guess birds eat seeds right? LOL

    As long as she is offering grit to the chicks - there is nothing wrong with it.

    I start my bator hatched chicks on day 3 on a dish of grit. Then I offer them everything the main flock gets - from kitchen "scraps" to whole grains and mealworms.
