    First of all, we are out of chick starter and I don't want to feed that stuff any more to my 49-day old chicks (Rhodies). That's 7 weeks of age!

    I have the opportunity to buy some millet but I don't know if it's still got the husk on, or not.

    Does anyone know if it matters if the husk is still on? In either case, should I grind the millet up for them?

    I will also be feeding them crushed wheat + supplement + grit + fresh garden treats.

    Can someone give an opinion here? Many thanks.
