    I'm getting my baby chicks Monday from Tractor Supply but I'm not sure how much food to feed a baby chick per day. I know with adults you feed them around a cup of feed per bird per day. Would chicks be half that? Less than half? Any help would be greatly appreciated. [​IMG]

    You give chicks free choice.

    x2 I would have food and water available at all times and let them eat as they choose. Unless you are buying a meat-specific breed, they will not over eat.
