    Need opinions on what the best treats are for one week old chicks - I've read a lot of members using hard boiled eggs and meal worms - anything else that is a treat and good for them? are greens to early for them?
    I have been using chick starter - so haven't been needing any grit yet - afraid to give them bread and other grains.

    I think cut up grapes would be OK.

    I wouldn't give them anything but chick starter and vitamins & electrolytes for at least the first 4 weeks. They need the nutrition. You've got plenty of time to give them treats after they've grown a bit.
