    Just got a 3 week old Polish chick. How do I know she's eating and drinking. Will she copy my other chick who I have had for a while, so the other chick knows where food is.

    Yes should copy your other chick. But if you want to make sure tap your finger in the feed so it makes a noise this should encourage to come and peck at the food. With the water pick the chick up and dip its beak in the water it will soon figure where it is.
    Good luck with your polish chick :frow
