Hi, my name's Scott and I'm new to chicken raising. I was wondering if it's a problem to give baby chicks food other than chick starter, such as a small amount of table scraps and things from outside. Also is there a problem with using things from outside as their bedding/cage lining such as grass, leaves, weeds, bark, etc. Other than being more of a hastle to deal with are there any problems with this? (This is where the questions about eating things from outside comes from) Thanks for your help!
