    Hi all, I just hatched out 15 chicks from 28 eggs which I think is a decent amount considering it is my first ever hatch. They are Ameraucanas and I am now addicted to hatching and am placing an order for more hatching eggs next week!!! My question is what else can I give my week old baby chicks to eat instead of just their regular feed?

    I would not give them treats....yet. Maybe waite till they are 3 or 4 weeks. Then offer them some peeled hard boiled eggs. ( no shells) They love that!! Just remember....only a little..and only once a week..or you will have to give them grit as well!
