    Hi rael,
    Welcome! Thay should have food and water available at all times. Since they are babies and they are doing some major growing right now they will eat alot! LOL! I couldn't believe how fast my chickies can empty out a feeder and waterer.[​IMG]

    I have 11 Cuckoo Marans who are one week old today. What kind of chickies do you have? How many?

    I allow my RIR to feed whenever they wish. They don't seem to mind at all!
