    Does anyone happen to know if it's ok for chicks to eat any of those items? Chick-chick is still on mash and grazes weeds, grass, snails, and whatever's in the dirt when we let her out.

    I just threw the bouganvellia in there b/c we have a lot of that in the yard and chick-chick lives under them. She doesn't touch them so I assume they're not for her but I figure no harm in asking. [​IMG]

    TY in advance [​IMG]

    Potatoes are a no no. Bouganvilla-no idea. The rest okay but, make sure you fully cook and mash up the eggs.

    We feed our girls cooked potatos (they LOVE them!) but not raw.

    No celery? Lettuce? I feed my girls those things all the time. Waste scraps from salads, no onions, along with cooked potato, rice, barley, what ever is left over, the girls enjoy.

    Our two girls go absolutely CRAZY over red or green grapes. They normally live together in peace and harmony but if a grape enters the picture they will knock each other down, body-block or steal from the other's mouth to get it. Just limit the grape-giving to special occasions since they're very rich and sometimes not so great for digestion.
