If you take your chick starter feed and blend it into a fine mix like cornmeal, your chicks can eat it much easier and get a head start on the nutrition they need. I kept noticing that new born chicks where picking up the larger pieces and dropping them. They seem to large for them to swallow so I put some in my blender. The chicks eat it like crazy and waste much less feed as well. I sent this idea to a poultry magazine and they published it. I am sharing this with the forum to help others get their chicks healthy and happy faster. Give it a try, you will be pleased with the results.
