Chia seeds are very healthy for squirrels. You can feed as treats, on occasions.
Funny they are the same seeds that are included in the “Chia Pets”.
They are high in omega3 which our fuzzers need more of.

Can Squirrels eat Chia Seeds?
Yes, you can feed chia seeds to your squirrels with no issues at all. I typically feed mine on Fridays after serving myself some alongside oats.
They are rich in fiber and calcium and my curious squirrels want to try everything I eat, haha.
Chia seeds are purchased on Amazon and at a whole foods market. Same thing with Chia Pets.
