|BabyCakes make a great treat for your baby chicks. They are designed as a high-calorie supplement for your chicks. Ingredients promote digestive health with elevated amounts of fiber and probiotics. It also helps prevent boredom in the brooder. However, chicks younger than two weeks do not have adequate digestive systems for
sudden introduction to rich foods. BabyCakes are not a complete ration, but a fun treat for chicks two to eight weeks old!
Hang BabyCake in your brooder or place it in a feeder off the brooder floor. Make sure it will not tip over! Begin by offering it to your two-week-olds for an hour, and then increasing the time
gradually over the course of two weeks. By the fourth week, the treat
be left out for several hours a day. Make certain that you keep the BabyCakes away from any heat
source (such as the heat lamp in your brooder). It is like suet; if it
gets hot, it can melt, making a mess to clean up.
Do use common sense: this is a treat only, and should be used sparingly. If you feel
your birds are eating too much of this or any other low-protein treat, reduce their access
time to the treats. Chicks need proper nutrition to grow and feather.
Protein (min): 7%

Be sure that your chicks' main diet consists of their nutritionally
balanced starter. When you are offering BabyCakes (or anything other
than their finely
milled starter), be sure they have access to grit so they can properly
digest their food.
