I just received my three day old cornish rock chicks. They look very healthy and are drinking water, but they are not interested in food. Is this normal for meat chicks?

Give them some time. They may not look stressed, but shipping is very stressful on them.

They'll figure it out- remember, they're shipped right after they hatch, so they've probably never had food of any kind. Instinct will kick in soon enough.
