    Do any of you feed greens to your chicks? My chicks love eating greens.They go nuts over them:) I know chicks don't have gamebird starter in the wild. So what do you guys feed them?

    My quail like millet. Not sure why but I had some in the trash in the quail exercise pen and they were in the can eating it lol! I guess because we feed them a mix of 50% layer crumbles and 50% finch seed. I also feed them lettuce and they tear it up, shred it to pieces. It is entertaining to watch!
