    Be sure and use a good quality chick starter and I prefer at least 20% protein or more. I also like to use some sugar in the water for the first three days and a package of electrolytes are a good idea too. Check out the baby chick stickie. You can feed boiled eggs (messy) as it is of course perfect chick food. Good luck!
