    Hello guys
    I made an egg incubator using arduino
    It recently hatched 6 chicks [​IMG]
    Now i have 2 questions:
    1 should i keep them sleeping in the encubator or in the box
    2 do the baby chicks know how to drink?
    I haven't seen them drinking yet!

    Use the box but something bigger with heat would be better??
