    hi i Have 5 7 to 8 week old chicks 2 4 to 5 week old chicks and 3 5 to 6 week old chicks. I was wondering what is the best thing i can give them as a treat. Also How do i provide more protin in thier diet becasue one of the 4 to 5 weeks old chicks is extra small and also pulling her featehr out from under her wings nearly right on her back u really can not tell till she raises her wings up. But i wold love to give them treats and wanted to know what the best thing to give them

    Finely chopped hardboiled eggs, a bit of fish like canned salmon, mackerel or tuna (preferably the low salt type), plain yogurt are all good "treats", but will add good quality protein to their diet.
