    Can 11 1/2 week olds have popcorn?

    If it's popped, sure. I wouldn't give more than a handful per bird per day though.

    Unpopped it's going to be hard to digest, but even that can be fed if they have access to good grit. Not more than half a handful per bird per day though as they should be eating mostly starter or grower feed at that age.

    Butter and even salt. Just don't go crazy with it. They need to be eating mostly their starter feed.
