    I read the treats chart and I was wondering if it was okay to give baby chicks those things too? also how much?[​IMG]

    I started giving mine treats as soon as I put them outside. Just little bits. A handful of scratch, a few shredded pieces of lettuce, chopped boiled eggs.

    My older girls get whatever is left over in the fridge plus some scratch. I don't have a compost pile anymore. I have chickens to take care of that

    I agree with Coyote, once outside they start getting treats. It is a must to have a camera handy if you use small bugs as treats. You will see why once you do it.
