Good gosh! My 3 week old chicks are eating like crazy! I have 3 Easter Eggers, 3 Australorps and 3 Plymouth Rocks and we are going through a 5lb bag of chick starter every 2 days! I wish our Agway sold that stuff in 20lb bags! Are there any "treats" I can give them? I dont want to disturb their disgestive systems, since they are only 3 weeks old. Can they eat bugs? We have lots of spiders and cave crickets (which are the most hideous insects ever! - these 1/2 dollar sized bugs jump like grasshoppers and scurry like spiders - I cant wait till the chickens are older, they'll have crickets every day!) http://desudesudesu.org/images/uploads/771227256905.jpg Or can they eat things like breadcrumbs and cheerios? Thanks for your helpful advice, once again!
