    My chicks arrived today....they're beautiful! All look very healthy and they're drinking and eating like there's no tomorrow...are there any little treats I can give them as a supplement along with their feed?

    Right now they just need lots of fresh water and chick starter to be sure they get off to a good start. In a few days, you can offer them pieces of a cut-up apples, sliced grapes, sliced cucumber - things that are juicy. For the time being, you can add a small bit of sugar to their water to give them a boost.
