My chicks hatched yesterday while I was away and I wasn't expecting them until this weekend I have no feed for them. I have access to soy, corn, barley, distillers grains, canola and the premix laying feed which I assume they should not have. Will any of the other feeds do until tomorrow night when I can get them some chick grower?

ThePRfan is right, they don't need to eat for the first 3 days because they can live off of the remaining yolk in their tummies. I always like to get mine eating asap though, just to be safe. So I would offer them water of course, and maybe some hard-boiled eggs chopped up very fine. That'll give them a nice protein boost and that way they will definitely be ok until tomorrow night when you can get them proper feed.
