Im wondering what kind of scraps people feed chicks and chickens. Im new at this, my chicks arent even in their coop yet. Id like to give them a treat and table scraps, just afraid to try it without some examples. Thanks
I was so excited to give my pullets strawberry tops (and a few whole berries) this morning after I hulled the berries... and at the end of the day, THEY DIDN'T EVEN TOUCH THEM! I was so disappointed. I thought it was going to be a treat!
I give mine everything except what I know they hate (lettuce and carrots) nothing overly salty, no onions or garlic. Pretty much everything else they gladly eat. Tater tots, strawberries (they favorite) leftover spaghetti (even just the plain noodles) ramen noodles, cantaloupe shell, eggs, bread, rolls that are about to go bad, oatmeal, leftover cream of wheat, and more. There is really not much they WONT eat, except raw carrots and lettuce. I don't give my littlest ones anything special yet though, they aren't out in the sand run yet~
Thanks so much! At least now I have an idea, and looking up what is bad to feed them is a great idea, so thanks
. Im not sure how old they are, I had an annoying employee at the feed store who couldnt offer me anything but the box to bring them home in. When I asked how old they are, her reply was "a day". well, they had had them a day. I gave up at that point. I have had them about 4 weeks now. They have lost almost all their fuzz and i noticed yesterday their heads have a bald spot and new feathers are starting to sprout. I guess I will wait until they are a little bigger to give them scraps. I really appreciate the help and I am so glad I found this site
