When can i introduce greens to my chicks? How about worms? We had a rain last night and garden worms are everywhere, I'd love to give them a treat. Should I wait until I introduce grit?

We suggest to hold off on the treats until the chicks are at least 4-6 weeks old. At that age the greens would be ok to give but worms probably not until the chicks are a couple months old.

I know this is for water but if you mix honey, apple cider, and garlic it will help the chicks systems.

My chicks have been getting a large handful of chopped organic lettuce mix, swiss chard and a small handful of dried meal worms every day. I also gave them the water mix of probiotic, honey, garlic and raw apple cider vinegar for the first week. I only had 4 pasty butts out of 21, which got washed gently with warm water and a terry cloth until clear. They are all getting feathers, but Oddball (free chick) had them started when they arrived. Having a blast with these birds.
