We have about a dozen or so week old chicks, we give them medicated chick starter and a little apple cider vinegar (with the mother) in their water. They haven't been handled as much as we'd like due to a brooder with high walls (too high but we're working on it), and we want to try to associate ourselves with some kind of treat to help correct that. Boiled and mashed egg yolk was what we were considering, but couldn't figure out if they would need grit to eat yolk or not. Thanks in advance for any advice! They are Silver Laced Polish and Splash Cochins if that makes any difference. Some of the Polish are getting mild cases of Pasty Butt, nothing serious and we stay on top of it but supposedly the yolks could help with that as well...
