I have gotten my little chicks to 2 weeks of age and they are still adorable. Question: When will they be old enough to handle seeds? They are still getting the game feed and some egg food right now. What seeds would be best when they are ready?

Seeds would be a snack -- the gamebird starter is a complete, balanced diet for them for life. The only supplement would be oyster shell for females -- they lay constantly, will perish without it.

Wait a week if you want to give them seed finch seed is best. The birds are mature at around 8 weeks. Please note that you will need to give them grit if you feed seed.

Enjoy them!
