    That would depend on many factors---
    Where did you find these chicks?
    Were you incubating eggs?
    Were they a surprise from your hen?
    We need a little more info [​IMG]

    i found them - under a hen that squished the others and i took them from her so she didnt squish them as well.

    Were you incubating eggs - no

    Were they a surprise from your hen - no i knew they where hatching but i didnt know she would squish them

    so now there inside my house in a rabbit cage.

    what do i do.

    ok- ok:

    1) heat source. They need to be 99 degrees. Heat lamp or until you can get one (run and get one now) put a short lamp right over them in the box.
    2) food. chick feed will do (again... run and get some)
    3) water access (even just a butter/cream cheese container lid with water in it for now)
    4) Read the chicken 101 section for "chick" care
