    I'm new to the whole chicken experience and I'm curious as to when I can give my chicks some treats and what would be great to give them. They are currently less than a week old; exactly 6 days now. They're all doing great and they've been eating their medicated crumbles just fine, I just thought it might be nice to give them some variety from time to time. On a side note, I haven't had any pastings issues whatsoever... Not that I'm complaining, but is there a point in when I don't have to check their little rear ends anymore?

    If they have treats then they need chick grit. Any small treats are fine. (Meal worms, veggies, sunflower seeds, etc) Just make them small size so they wont choke. I love throwing a cricket in their cage and watching them chase it around, and carry it around.
