How old do baby chickens have to be to eat raw veggies and yogurt, etc?


I have older hens a fence between my younger ones and the younger seem upset they are not getting any of the treats and I offered them a little grass and dandelion they didn't seem interested in so thought of cutting them some small pieces of veggies but don't want to hurt them. They are close to a month old and all I give them is the medicated baby chick feed. Any advice appreciated.

    Thank you; I have them in a place without grass but there is dirt.

    Wow, a day old? Well mine don't have a mama; I got them from a hatchery, poor things but I am glad to know they can just feed themselves by now and find them a grassy place to roam. Thank you!
