What treats can I give to week old chicks? Something other than their feed
Oh okay! I knew they needed grit but I wasn't sure about it allApyl said:Chickens do not have teeth so they need grit to help grind up foods other than feed witch breaks down in water. Grit can come in the form of dirt / sand from the ground to store bought bagged grit which is just sand anyway. Anytime you feed any bird they need access to grit whether from the ground that they get themselves or you putting it in a bowl. Just all depends on your set up. If you chicks are already on the ground and outside then they are already eating grit and bugs and such.
