    Hi All,

    Can I give my 4 week old girls a treat of entertainment, fun, and food in the form of mealworms?

    They have been telling me they need more entertainment...they are in cold Minnesota and they are not allowed outside....[​IMG]

    TIA,

    Michele, new chicken mommy....

    Sure! Just make sure they're getting some chick grit. I don't know who will have more fun - the chicks or you! [​IMG]

    THANKS!!!

    Yep, they are getting "parakeet type" grit. Hope that's right.

    I do confess some selfishness in the mealworm program....[​IMG]

    They are SO much fun....

    Can't wait to take them outside....if only it would warm up.

    Michele
