    I was wondering if it's ok for chicks to eat mealworms. I was planning on using them to train my 4-H show bird.

    thanks

    I am a first time chick mom. But have been giving worms since they were 3 days old back in mid December and so far so good. Great for training!

    No worries, just be sure to provide them with grit [​IMG]

    Hey! Kinda off topic, but is it ok to just give a chick sand in place of grit?

    Sure, or you can just give them a dish with some dirt from your yard. They're pick the little pebbles out for grit and dust themselves in it :)
