Hello...my name is Betsy (No, I'm not a cow and do not own a cow!). I have new little chicks that are about a week and a half old. They are all happy, eating some crumbles out of my hand, and listening to soft rock in my basement. I have gently picked a couple of them up in my hand in the process of taming them. I am just itching (no, not scratching!) to give them some treats. I know I have to start giving them some grit--I am going to buy a package of parakeet gravel. Should I start giving them the grit first for several days before I give them treats? What kind of treats should I start with? Is it too early for live mealworms? Any suggestions?
