So I was sitting here with my 3 week old chicks (Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday .......) and was thinking about flies, that people were complaining about flies and was wondering why their chickens weren't eating flies, what was wrong with flies, when one of my chicks reached up and grabbed a fly that was just flying through their pen. They all went bananas after that one fly. I said, "Hooray!" Now I've just cut up a cantaloup rind to put in the compost pile and was wondering if there's any reason I can't give the babies small pieces of rind, not too much mind you, but maybe a square inch. Anybody, is it okay? Is it okay to give them small pieces of things that big chickens like? Not enough to distract from their chick feed.
