My older hen was broody so we got her a day old and slipped it under her after dark. She has been keeping it warm and safe for 3 days now but she hardly ever goes out to eat and I don't think the chick eats much either. I have food and water right near the nest box so they can easily get it. The mom only goes down to the lower feeder once a day that I know of. The chick and mom still act Healthy though. I have seen the baby eatting alittle chick starter while the mom is out of the nest. How much do 4 day olds need to eat and drink.
