I picked up my 5 Barred Rocks from the feed store this past Monday. All seems to be going well. The chicks are active and kind of conk out laying face down in the wood chips. couple of pics attached. They are pretty funny...and seem to be growing. I have a couple of questions I could use some help with: The chicks are about a weeks old. I notice they are scratching up the wood chips with their feet, down to the floor of the crate they're in... and then pecking the floor. I'm wondering if I should throw some grit or food into the wood chips so they can feel like they're "finding something". Any suggestions? Should I be giving them any other food... other than their chick starter.... some yogurt, or finely chopped up veggies? or is 1 week a bit too young? Since the weather is getting warmer... I'm wondering if I could bring them outside, keeping them in their cage but maybe putting them in their run for fifteen minutes or so.... any thoughts? Thanks for the suggestions and help.
