I have been looking everywhere for some help and need some thoughts . what age do you think , is too early to feed baby chicks live mealworms ? Sometimes we like to throw some tiny mealworms in for newly hatched chicks that are about a week old or so depending on the size of the chick depends on the size of mealworms i give them. What are the cons or any pros of feeding live mealworms to really young chicks. can it cause respiratory issues from the exoskeletons ? how much is to much for bantam chickens and standard chickens ? what is a good age to start giving them live mealworms ? Can it cause damage to the liver or other organs feeding protein to early ? thank you for your thoughts and help. i sometimes have noticed some chicks at a really youngs age having problems even eating baby baby mealworms , so we have cut back for awhile on giving it to my silkie chicks till i get more info .
