    I would love to give my meat birds some treats. They are 5 weeks as of the 13th and are almost as big as my full grown egg chickens. What can they eat for treats?

    Thanks
    Lily

    Shelled corn would be safe and wouldn't affect their growth as long as it's moderated. Plus they love it.

    Nice I figured if they are old enough to have treats then I should give them some I love to treat them. What about things like applesauce or yogurt or are those too harsh for baby birds?

    Clean water, fresh food. Mine seem pretty disinterested in anothing other than that. They do like mealworms. They REALLY like them.
