So, I've had much amusement the past few days over my chicks going crazy over little bugs getting in their brooder. When I was in the pet shop picking up fish food, I was attracted to the smaller sized crickets, imagining what fun my girls would have chasing 5 or so around for a little treat, not to mention the fun I'd have watching They'll be 10 days old tomorrow (my god, they grow up so fast), is this too soon? I remember reading on this forum that treats should not be given before, I think, the 2 week mark? But I'm unsure of that and cannot find the right thread to save my life. I'm no chicken expert by any means, but I can't see where a couple tiny crickets would cause a huge issue at this age. Although, I've been known to be wrong on more than one occassion. The weather has been so beautiful here that I was hoping to give them a bit of supervised outside play time this weekend (again, is this too soon?), where they would more than likely get their beaks into some bugs anyway. Is grit necessary? Or is what is supplied in their starter feed sufficient? I figured that if it is, rather than setting out a container with it, I'd just offer a bit on my finger, so I can monitor how much each chick gets without the fear of an impacted crop.
