What are some things I can give to my 3 week old BO's for treats and entertainment??
Okay, I siing to my baby chicks and I cluck at them like a mamma hen does and touch them ever since they were born....So I'm mamma! No extra special treats. Lots of clean water and clean brooder!
I set and talk to mine so fun to watch them and they look so interested
in what I say. I also give my chicks kitty toys. Like the little balls that have bells in
them. Also cut up toilet paper rolls are fun for them. I had a chick that would roll
them around his brooder I also try and give them stuffed animals or a feather
duster to snuggle up in, Especially if it's all alone with no other chicks. As far as treats
go, they like watermelon. Oatmeal is good, scrambled eggs, chopped up boiled eggs,
bananas to. have fun.
Put a small mirror and some low small roosts in with them. You can give most any treat from the treats chart -- obviously, if it is small enough for them. Put some things in there for them to hop onto and jump off of.
day 3 i start giving crushed old fashion cooking oatmeal ( not the instant ) on top of feed...day 5 bits of breads..after a few days when i put hand in & call..chick-chick- chick...they come running to eat out of hand..sitting like trained house birds...oatmeal also helps in keeping them from pastin up(poo on bum) ... i will toss in any leftovers from meals...i had to winter in house..in kitchen seramas..when i sat down for meals little hen would make so much fuss when food went into my mouth & not hers !!!
