    What age can you start giving chicks some treats? Also what kinds of treats are good for baby chicks? My chicks are 3 days old and I was wondering when I could start giving them treats.

    I wouldn't give them any treats yet, If they're 3 days old I think they're too young. I would wait a little bit more. I gave my chicks cottage cheese and they love it! But they were older then a week. [​IMG] I think it's be better safe then sorry with baby chicks! [​IMG]

    I give them quaker oats from the grocery store. They love it. It does take them a few tries to figure out what it is though.
