    I have three beautiful little baby chicks. They are a a few days away from 3 weeks old. Just wondering if it would be okay to feed them scrambled eggs. They've had oatmeal before and loved it. Just curious about the eggs though. I've seen a lot of posts about it but would love to know about it first-hand.

    Thanks, Rachel. [​IMG]

    I feed scrambled eggs to 3 day olds--go for it. It is very very good for them. No grit needed with scrambled eggs.

    My finicky birds seem to prefer mashed, hard boiled eggs over scrambled lol. I"ve always given hard boiled and the one time I made them scrambled eggs I got dirty looks all around!

    Definitely! I've fed all of my hens scrambled eggs when they were chicks. They practically inhaled it! Although the idea of it may seem a little wrong, scrambled eggs are very good for them!

    How do you serve the oatmeal? runny or thick? I have to give my 15 month old super thick oatmeal or it goes everywhere! [​IMG]

    My chicks were 1 week old today and I gave them their first scrambled egg. One of them finally got up enough courage to grab a piece and started running and they all gave chase. My daughter wants to name the 10 pullets with Disney character names so I decided she could be Meredith from Brave. I waited a bit but no one else seemed brave enough to give it a go. I went to Lowe's to get some stuff for the coop and when I came back all the egg was gone. They also got to go outside for the first time today.
