Chicks only?

Question:

My 2011 male Eastern really doesn't care for mice. He used to eat them occasionally, but has taken to only eating chicks and always leaving the mouse. I have tried both hairless and normal mice. My feeding schedule has been 1 chick along with 1 mouse every 5-7 days, but now he leaves the mouse alone.

So, is this fine? He will also eat fish occasionally, but is there any negative to a largely chick-based diet?

My 2011 female devours anything I put in front of her, so I give her both chicks and mice.

Thanks for any help.
