    I bought some wheat grass for my cats that they refuse to touch (in spite of eating every house plant they can get to...) so can my 2 and 3 week old chicks eat it? I have some bantams, some standards.

    i dont see why not... except maybe you would want to hold off on it until they are a bit older. 4 weeks i think? if you arent feeding them the grass potted, i suggest cutting it into smaller pieces so that they can eat it bite sized. if you are going to just feed them the entire pot of it planted, they can just rip off the ends.
