    You can try cooked, but they might not go for it, I've tried many things at that age and really eggs, oatmeal and yogurt was all they were interested in.

    Anytime! The older they get, the more they will try, well at least 1 bird then the entire flock will have a go at it but things you believe they will "love", they will hate, and you will be disapointed but don't get discouraged, they may end up trying it at a later date. One hint with yogurt, ours love eating it off a spoon!
