    I have 3 babies that are one month old as of today... 1 buff orpington, 1 black australourpe, and 1 barnvelder

    Asides from the medicated started feed and some granular chick booster that gets mixed with their feed, can I begin to introduce other foods to them? Hard boiled or scrambled eggs, Mealworms?? What about Kale or other types of greens. Don't have grass for them to enjoy yet...

    Thanks for any insight!

    don't do mealworms, there bodies won't be able to digest it. I'd recommend plain scrambled eggs, chicks seem to love the stuff after they figure out that it's food:p:thumbsup

    How do I provide grit along with scrambled eggs? Do you just throw some grit in on the brooder floor? Mix in with food? Or in a dish by itself?
