    Just wondering if I can feed my ~3 week old chicks leftover scrambled eggs.

    If so, do I need to super mash them up? And provide grit or what? I'm a newbie -- and don't want to hurt em. [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Agree. Give it as it is - and I would put down some chick grit if you are going to feed them anything other than chick feed.

    They are going to love it!

    I use to feed finly chopped up egg to sick chicks I had and they ate it.Just make sure to sprinkle a lil grit on it so they can digest it easier.

    Yes. you can feed the chicks scrambled eggs. My chicks love them! and I give them chick grit with it. Scrambled eggs are actually good for the chicks when they are sick & weak too. [​IMG] Noriko.

    Thanks to all of you who responded!

    Just wanted to update and tell you that all 10 of them went *crazy* over those scrambled eggs! And I thought my human kids loved eggs! lol They mauled every single piece until they were all gone. It was funny watching them too. [​IMG]
