What are some good snacks for the 6 week old chicks?
Hello and welcome to BYC. I feed mine sunflower seeds, peanuts(chopped finely), dried oats, watermelon, applesauce, lean meats without salt, bugs, weeds, vegetables(chopped finely) raw and cooked, homemade wheat bread, and sometimes cracked corn. I try to keep it very healthy. Too much salt can poison the chicks.
& from Louisiana! I give mine pretty much anything except raw potato peels!! Their like little vultures!!
Hi from Ga.
HERSHEY likes Dobermans for a snack.
Meal worms were mine's first treat!
& from Alabama. Glad you joined us. Ours love black oil sunflower seeds, watermelon, peas, berries, etc.
Here's the treats chart: https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=2593-Treats_Chart
and from Ohio. So glad you joined.
Since I got my Silkie-boy the end of Sept 2010 and snow was already on the ground, my friend suggested I grow wheat grass in little trays. Takes about 2-3 weeks but Silkie-boy loved it and so did his friend Bugsey bunny. I had purchased a bag of chicken scratch from our local feed store and the feed consisted of whole wheat kernals, oats, barley, corn and about 3 other grains, I would throw an handful into a tray and cover with an inch of soil and water well, keep moist but not wet. Worked great for the next 6 months until the following spring. You'll soon learn their likes and dislikes.
Welcome to BYC. Hope you enjoy the site and return often.
Hopefully by now you have checked out the treat chart.
