    Are they eating it?

    A little bit of toe pecking is to be expected, toes look like worms, act like worms, and prolly dont taste too far off either . . .

    It takes a bit of testing when your only a day old . . . [​IMG]

    I've had good luck with just pouring the feed on the floor (paper towels here) for the first few days. It hides their toes a bit and keeps them eating.
