    New to this: My new girls are 4 weeks old. If I give them grit, can they have scratch and other treats? What do you suggest?[​IMG]

    If you give them grit, they can have treats.
    They may not be as adventurous as you'd think to eat other foods, but they'll eventually catch on.
    I wouldn't go out and buy anything extra; just give them some things from your kitchen.
    Their primary nutrition comes from their chick starter, so provide treats sparingly.
