    Hello! My chicks are a week old today and I wanted to give them eggs. Was it okay to give them scrambled eggs? I read somewhere that people were recommending giving hard boiled eggs or if you scramble to not use nonstick pans (thats all I have). i just wasn't sure what is best. New chick momma here so I don't want to harm them in any way. Thanks!!

    it is OK to treat them to scramble eggs. :thumbsup Just remember to keep everything in moderation and... variety is the spice of life.
    If you have a spice grinder or mortar and pestle you can make baby food for chicks out of many things. Misc in your cupboard with pantry moths or beetles ...
    old oatmeal grits corn barley dog or cat food and on and on. :D

    My daughter and I dug around the house outside and caught a dozen or so very small roaches. They went nuts for them. Amazing how fast even week old chicks are when it comes to catching and eating bugs.

    As long as they also have grit available, it's fine, although their base diet should be most of what they are eating.
