    I have 5 week old chicks.
    Can I give them meal worms as a treat every day?
    How often?
    How about raw corn on the cob?

    I might not give them any for awhile as they try to peck my eyes out every chance they get !! haha

    Thanks in advance for your response.

    Hi Welcome to the BYC [​IMG]

    Yes I gave my kids corn in a can packed in water. All summer we feed them corn when it was 10 for a dollar. We canned a ton of frozen corn this year for just the chickies. Daily it seems to be rice, spaghetti, hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, yogurt, melons ends they pick clean to the skin. They love rasins from my Raisin Bran cereal and the bran after its soft. They like cottage cheese, shredded cheese. They like chicken like pulled strips and run every where trying to eat it alone . The are funny creatures.
