    Hi There

    I am just new to the wonderful world of chickens and just love it...I am located in canada b.c and we have 24 chicks of all different types..we have[please excuse the spelling if it is wrong]..2 cuckoo marans,2 golden laced wyandott??9 barr rock[did have 10 but the poor thing passed away on us on day two:(],2 white leghorn,5 bovan browns,2 red rocks & 2 really fluffy black and white speckled something[we are not sure what they are as they were in with the 9 barr rock..I did post a picture of them on here if anyone knows what they are that would be great]...I do have a question though....is it okay to give the chicks broken up pieces of bread?I have and they go crazy for it but I don't know if it is okay or not...I tried oats and they didn't like them..I am curious as to what treats I can give them?

    Many thanks to all
    Kim

    Quote:Burgers! As in the meat? I don't think that is ok but I am no expert. Plant based kitchen scraps are all fine but I am pretty sure chickens should not eat meat.

    my birds get ALL my leftovers...including meat...including in fact....yes....chicken. I keep a cool whip container on the counter and nothing gets thrown away, it gets thrown in the "chicken bowl" .....haven't had any problems thus far and it's been over 6 months....
