but not very nutritious, so mice and rats are way better. people usually only feed chicks to non-feeders.

The nutrition guide that was posted a while ago sugested that chicks were similar in fat but with only slightly less nutrition than weener and small rats.

No need to apologise I just don't think many people were aware of it, I have been looking for it for the past 20 minutes and I can't find it any where, so if anyone knows how to find it could they please post a link
