    My babies arrived Tuesday and so far so good:) I only have 10, but that's enough for starting out. I do have them on medicated chick starter food and they all have great appetites and drink their water great too. But I have noticed that if a fly gets down in the brooder container with them they go crazy chasing it, LOL! And these girls are only a few days old! Would it hurt to give them "crippled" flys to chase and try to eat at this age or should I just give them the starter feed? TIA!!

    Don't know for sure about the flies but I don't think it will hurt them.

    Congrats on the little ones and post pics when you can [​IMG]
