How much do I feed them ?
Just give them their feeder full of chick starter and let them eat what they want. Chicks grow really fast, they need a lot of nutrition and should have food, chick starter, available at all times.
Edited to add: Just have to say how jealous I am! I love nothing more then getting a box of new chicks to install in my brooder lol!
Where did you order from and where did you ship them to? Did the cold weather affect any of them during the shipping? dID THEY ALL MAKE IT ok?
I ordered from Ideal poultry in Cameron Texas . I ordered 10 and they put in an extra 8 for warmth and comfort .. They shipped yesterday , so I called first thing to see if they were there and they were so I ran down to get them put heat on high it was still in the 30's . I got them home. dunk there heads in water and they are happy under the heat lamp .. They all look good .. I'm very happy with this order .. They all were eating well and found the water ..
all my birds chicks to adults have food avaiable 24/7 and they do well dont seem to over eat
Thanks , I wasn't quite sure with the little ones , I'll keep them full
the only chicks that people ever usually restrict food is with the cornish cross meat birds to control their growth but all other breeds can have as much as they want
