    I'm pretty sure I started with mine by then.... not a lot, mind you, but some. I think I had tried to give them stuff before then, but they weren't sure what to do with anything that wasn't feed or a bug. I sort of figured that when they got old enough to know that treats were edible, well, they were old enough!

    I started with yogurt at 10 days old and added a treat a week after that. At first I kept the amounts very small, now they get pretty much whatever, whenever.
