At what age can you introduce "treats" and what treats would be best to start with?? My chicks are eating out of our hands, the whole family! I would like to reward them with a little treat but I am not sure if it is ok yet. Thanks in advance!!
You have to provide them with grit if you give them anything other than their chick starter/grower food. Bread makes their poo runny, so give in moderation. Parakeet grit that you can buy at WalMart is smaller than regular chicken grit. I would give very finely chopped apple without the peeling to young chicks; again, in moderation. Very small bites of Romaine lettuce is good, too.
