    Im not sure when people would say fruit and mealworms are ok... But personally we let them eat what they want... Just remember if they are eating things other than chick starter they will probably need a grit of some sort

    I tried giving mine a bit of watermelon I was eating last night during their run the living room free time. They couldn't have cared any less about that! In fact the one stood on the piece and pooped on it! SO... yep lol! Mine are two weeks old.
