    Hi all,

    My first post here- have had my three new chicks for two days now, they are four days old. I made cheese today and was wondering if it was still too early to feed them whey? Does anyone have guidance on at what age to begin introducing new foods other than chick mash? Whey? Vegetable and herb scraps (cut small of course).

    Thanks, all- I've already learned so much reading the forums.

    Blessings on the Chicks,

  2. Not really sure about the whey but I do know if you start feeding them any greens then you should have something to provide grit for them to be able to digest it. If not that can be dangerous to the chicks. By the way [​IMG]
