    Hello! I just received my 1st ever baby chicks last week. I got 3 Plymouth rock hens. I want to give them treats but I am not clear on how old they have to be and what kind of treats are ok for little ladies they are 1 week old :) help me! I've also been handling them as offer as I can. They are so funny to watch and it has been a joy so far!
     
  2. I wouldn't feed them anything treat like until they have ascess to the outdoors, unless you'd like to feed them grit.

    When they're 2-3 weeks old a bit of leafy stuff or pasta would be OK if you offer them some pebbles to scratch in just in case
