    We have 2 pet chicks and 3 hens and we would like to know what treats we could feed the chicks. we don't want to spoil them with lots of fruit though! [​IMG]

    Chickens will eat pretty much anything! Mine get lots of fruit and veggies and also some milo. You can feed chickens yogurt, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, grits, fruits, vegetables, seeds.... The possibilities are endless [​IMG] Just make sure they have access to grit, the treats are appropriately sized, and that the treats don't make up the majority of their food. It is really fun to try new foods and see which chickens like them and which don't! My chooks are enjoying beets right now [​IMG]
