    Hello I am new to raising chickens. We have 3 two week olds. 2 ri reds and one polish. I see people saying to part with your chicks regularly. Any ideas on ways to play with them. This may sound cheesy but...What types of things do chicks like to do. Is it safe to play with them out side of the brooder in my living room. Thanks for the help.

    You can let them out of the brooder if you'd like but make sure there aren't other pets that might hurt them and be careful not to drop step on them. You can buy parakeet bird seeds and the chicks will go crazy for them and you try to feed them mealworms too. Chicks will chase them and run away from others to enjoy them. Chicks also enjoy acting like chickens so the closer to that, the better!
