    If you're really worried about those little cuties not being able to eat the 'big' crumbles, you CAN just put some in a baggie and roll a .... rolling pin, yah, that's the ticket! - over it to break 'em up a bit more. Or put it through a food processor very briefly. Or a coffee grinder/mill. (Just make sure there's no coffee residue in it before grinding chick feed!)

    Adorable chicks. Just adorable. But they can eat those crumbles.

    They are precious! The food is just the perfect size....don't worry! Looks like you've got a very nice setup for them. You may want to consider wood shavings because it helps with the poo smell........I usually put the wood shavings down, then a paper towel down and sprinkle some food on that, because they like to peck around so much. After a few days, I take the paper towel away.

    You do want to make sure you use pine shavings and not cedar, and I've never had a chick eat pine shavings and die either.....I know some people worry about that. They seem to be aware of what's food and what's not.

    Enjoy those chicks! Aren't they fun!!!??
