    I waited a few weeks until the Hatching eggs that I put to The incubator hen for three days but I am
    not comfortable with the feed Which I give them because they are still very young and very
    vulnerable to disease and And I want an advice from you please for the types of healthy fodder for them
    and thank you very much

    :welcome
    X2 on the starter crumble!

    Also we don't use medicated starter. If you bring a little tray of dirt in from where the chicks will live outside once they are ready, that will expose them to the cocci living in your soil and that will help them built their immune system and gut flora.

    We had our babies dust bathing in the dirt tray when they were only three days old! So adorable!

    Oh and offer some chick grit if you give them access to plant matter or insects just to be sure they have the right sized grit in their gizzards :)
