    My girls ( I hope their all girls ) are 7 wks old. They just made the move to the finally completed coop outside. I have been offering HB egg, cooked pasta, and plain yogurt as treats. They love it all. my question is, when can I start on boss and or cracked corn etc.. ? thank you !! I'll be posting pic's of the ladies. I have one she that might be a he and need some professional eyes to look her over.

    Quote:They are old enough to eat anything an adult hen can eat. BOSS and scratch are OK. Make sure they have grit available, if they cannot get it in the yard.

    Just don't go overboard on the scratch--think of it like candy, they love it but too much isn't good for them. Mealworms and crickets are good too--lots of fun to watch them chase their treats and each other! [​IMG]
