    Does anyone know when you can give your chicks any treats? Like mealworms. The other night I saw a spider crawling up the heatlamp pole and one of my chicks found it and ate it. The other chicks were chasing her to fight for the spider. It was gross but funny at the same time.

    Welcome to BYC. I recommend that they only be fed starter/grower feed. Keep in mind their innards are still developing.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    I usually wait until they are at least 6 weeks old, then just offer little treats.
