My understanding is that chicks can go 72-hours without feed or water...that is how it is possible to ship day old chicks.

water may be more important that feed...and mashed hard-boiled eggs can be an emergency feed for your chicks.

congratulations on your hatch.

Don't worry about it. You'll probably be keeping them in the incubator overnight anyway to dry out and get their legs under them. They probably won't be seriously interested in food for another day or 2.
