    Well...Egg is a good treat for peachicks to eat... I don't know why you want them to stop liking it? Just give it to them as an occasional treat.

    You should mainly be feeding the peachicks a medicated chick starter feed. To get them to enjoy the medicated starter, you can add a little water to it to soften it. They love eating the chick starter when it is a little soggy and will eat it up very quickly.

    Egg is fine to give as a treat though. At first they might not eat the chick starter...You could even mix in pieces of egg into the starter to get them to try it.
