    Is it OK to feed popped popcorn to 4 week old chicks?

    I don't see why not. I have done it before and my chicks are just fine.

    That would be funny to watch the chicks wrestle over.

    Dogs are silly. I have a rabbit that fights my 4 year old for apple slices.

    Too much salt can lead to salt poisoning. Make sure there is no salt if using microwave popcorn.

    Just be sure they have access to grit or are free ranging, so they have something in the crop to help grind the popcorn up. That's a favorite of my birds, you should see them chase each other around!
