    I've looked at the treat chart, really awesome! But I didn't see an age reccomendation for them. When can you start feeding your babes some yummy treats? My guys are around 2 weeks old, would love to spoil them but don't want to give them something that would hurt them.

    You do have to keep in mind the size of the chick, one tiny little bit of something is plenty of treat.

    I only started mine around 4 weeks when I was taking them outside to dig around, and they got grit etc...

    you should try start off with Yogurt - but be ready for a mess. [​IMG]

    sesame seeds won't hurt them, cuz that is what people in egypt feed baby chicks for the first few days. mine had so many treats already, and they're not even three weeks old, and they are all healthy and happy. this is mostly because my 4 year old brother keeps dropping remnants of his meals in there. they liked fish, yogurt, eggs, and bread. cottage cheese wasn't as well recieved. they do like veggies occasionally. but yeah, only give them a tiny bit of something, and only occasionally.

    I chop broccoli finely and sprinkle it on yogurt from the first day I get them home. They love it.[​IMG]
