    I have recieved answers anywhere from "4 Days" to "2 Weeks." Is there a specific time where I should start giving treats?

    Nope - because most people believe different things about when to start treats. What everyone SHOULD agree on, is that whenever you begin giving treats, make sure your chicks have small grit available for them (just salt their feed with it). Also, just give a little of the treat, since you want them eating their formulated feed. I believe I began offering bits of chopped up boiled egg and scrambled egg at around a week of age.

    Ok, thank you!! I have some chick grit and I'm planning on feeding them chopped boiled egg or cabbage tomorrow.
