Meal Worms


11 Years
Feb 12, 2008
My chicks are quickly approaching 3 weeks old. All 10 are doing great and really growing.

I have given them NOTHING but chick starter since they arrived. No yogurt, no eggs, nothing.

I was thinking about giving them a meal worm treat one day this weekend. If I do so will I need to introduce grit? Is there enough grit in the starter to suffice? I dont plan on giving them treats every day...maybe once a week for the next 3 weeks or so.

Thanks all.
I would give them small grit like for parakeets if they eat anything other than their starter/grower feed. Some chick feed has grit in it, but it wouldn't hurt to give them some in case yours doesn't.
