    I'm interested to see what the chicks would do if I put a few blueberries infront of them....is that ok to do or would it make them sick? Any other fruit suitable for young ones?[​IMG]

    It will be fine just don't forget treats = grit so pick up some construction sand from somewhere and offer it to them sprinkled lightly on there food like salt and peppering a salad so to speak. you can also make them a little box to dust bath in and they will eat what they need.
