    Boiled and scrambled eggs are the chick's perfect food. It is what they lived on to grow into a chick. Anytime.

    Just don't feed them eggshells until they are laying. And if you do (some prefer to buy oyster shell, like me) make sure they are unrecognizable as an eggshell to prevent eggeating (crush).

    I give them a little something as soon as they're out and running around well, usually 3 days.

    Be sure to put it on your palm and lay your hand down on their floor, to bribe them, now! [​IMG]
