When do newly hatched chicks start drinking and eating?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

smile New chicks due anytime.  Once hatched, when do they start eating and drinking?  New at this! We are letting the momma do the job and she has been faithful sitting on them all this time.  When she does get up another sits faithfully for her.

The mom will take care of all that, they do a much better job at it than their meddling human caretakers do when we hatch in incubators LOL. They will be just fine, I realy enjoy watching the broody Mom do her thing with the new ones.

Standard White Cornish, Dark's & White laced Red Cornish Breeder..........If you don't have Cornish you don't have Chickens. Breeding the best, to the best.
As good as a few and better than most, What You'll Tolerate in your flock is what you'll get.
