    Right, this is probably going to sound really stupid but... what should I be feeding newly hatched chicks on? Ive got growers pellets, are they alright or is there something special I should be feeding them on? [​IMG] Cheers!

    It's called chick starter -mash or crumbles get a 50 lb bag feed it to at least 8 weeks old then go to grower and then layer.

    And don't forget the treats!! [​IMG]

    Plain yogurt and meal worms are usually big hits. So's scrambled egg. Just don't go overboard with them. [​IMG]
