    I will be getting my cheepies(I know, I have been harrassed about calling them that since I have been a little girl) next week and have been reading this forum in every spare minute I have. I have noticed a lot of people say to hard boil eggs and feed it to the chicks. WHen and how hard do I boil them? Do I start right away?

    Thank you so much.

    You don't have to feed them hard boiled eggs if you don't want to. Make sure not to feed them so much that they won't eat enough of their chick starter, it is more of a treat.
