    So I prepared a snack for everyone of Yougurt and oatmeal with berries....
    My 15 wk olds loved it, (20 of them)
    my 10 wk olds also loved it (5 of them)
    but the 6 wk olds loved it the best....(24 of them) I had to make Everything on PAPER PLATES so everyone could gather around comfortable to get some and the 6 wk olds ate the paper plates
    SHOUDLD I START FREAKING??? (ok already Freaking)
    Are they going to be ok???? They were just plain paper plates, they were the coated kind.... not the styrafoam type......

    I'm sure they will be fine. Chickens eat weird things all the time.
    And have no constipation problems for a while.
    My chicks have been eating newspaper.

    So stop freaking. It's OK, really.

    Imp-btw, styrofoam is a common favorite treat.

    We have a pullet with a cigarette butt fetish that started when she was a tiny chick, swallows them whole when she can find one that blew out of some of the local smokers ashtray...

    Gizzard just grinds them up and changes to chicken poop, just hope she doesn't get addicted to cigarettes [​IMG]
