Treats for chicks

Every couple of days I offer to my chicks treats – anything extra that is not they daily food (chicks crumbs).

Their favorite is the scrambled egg. I make a scrambled egg, let it cool down, mash it into small pieces and add 1 tablespoon of cornmeal or grounded rolled oats – prevent pasty butt, 1/4 teaspoon of Sea kelp – reduce the incidence of coccidiosis in baby chicks and 1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder – boosts immune system.

I mix them well together and serve to the chicks

If giving them anything than chicks crumbs, you have to provide them grit, so after giving them “treats” I provide them access to a tray of grit where they also love to scratch, bath and sleep 🙂
