Hi, Raising my first batch of chicks here, and they're all 2 weeks old and doing great. But I am starting to wonder about the feeding... what can I feed for treats? Most especailly, can I mix my own chick feed... I would love to do that, it seems a little easier to make interesting and tasty and switch ratios around for growth. On that note, can chicks, or chickens, eat wild bird feed as a treat? Can I buy some suet, or a samll bag of the dry wild bird mix, and let them enjoy it occasionaly (and how occasionally?) Right now I have a cheap little wire bird feeder hanging in the brooder and have been giving them some bread (plain, store-bought) in there every other day or so. They love it, but I'd like to swtich it out for something healthier. Does anybody else have these questions or know the answers? I am scared to kill my little chickies but long for something more than plain ol' chick starter feed... seems so boring! Thanks for any input!
