    We were just at Petsmart and I was wondering if our 13 day old RIR chicks can eat those stick treats for Parakeets? I bought some, just in case y'all say yes. [​IMG] I didn't see why not but figured I'll better make sure before I hang it in their cage. What about those Millet sticks (branches?)?
    Thanks guys!

    I mean, the basic ration is all they need. They might prefer some green veg to peck at if they want extra. Broccoli is good [​IMG]

    Just as a treat.. To keep them occupied. [​IMG] I got one of those suet feeders and put broccoli and banana pieces in it but they aren't touching it.

    I would think it'd be fine. I know the millet is, I've heard that you should hang it up, so that they won't trample it.

    Thank you. I figured for sure the millett would be, but like I said, I'd rather be safe. [​IMG] I'll hang the parakeet treats in there for them, hopefully they'll like them.
