    I want to give my babies something different and was wondering what type of snacks I can give them. My chicks range in age from a few days to 3/4ish weeks

    Mashed ripe banana would be okay.

    some grass clipping but make sure they get some grit. sand would work fine if you don't have chick grit laying around. also some mealworms all chickens love to eat bugs and they have good protein content.

    I gave mine some oatmeal, cooked and cooled of course. They also went nuts for left over omelet from breakfast.

    oatrmeal, rice, fruit like melon, grape. You should start it for them by cutting it.
