feeding new chicks

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by the simple life, May 2, 2008.

  1. Help!
    We got back from the feed store a little bit ago where we picked up some 5 day old chicks.
    I asked the owner for a 25 lb bag of chick feed and while he was ringing me up had a store clerk bring a bag from out back and put it in my car.
    Well I get home and unpack the chicks and get them all settled, I go get the bag of feed and its a bag of grass seed!!!!
    I called the store and they are closed.
    What should I do for food until tomorrow morning when the store opens?

    Grind up some cereal (NO SUGARY STUFF), cook some rolled oats or rice and feed it to them when it has cooled.
