    I have had my chicks since April 6th (they were probably 3 or 4 days old when I got them) and they have grown so much. They are getting feathers now and chasing moths around the coop. It's fun to watch one grab an injured moth and run as if she's running for a touchdown while the entire team is on her tailfeathers. My question is can I give them treats like bread yet?[​IMG]

    bread is not a good treat

    fresh veggies like lettuce is better. If giving anything other than chick food you need to make sure they have grit

    My chicks LOVE grapes. They were scared of them at first, but now they'll chase each other around the coop to get them. [​IMG]
