How long after chicks hatch do you start them on chick starter.

Grats on those last two saves. We have had chicks go for the water and feed within an hour after fluffing up in the brooder. Others have just lounged around for up to a day or more after hatching out. Either case is just fine. If' you hit the 4 day mark and they haven't figured things out, then ya need to start "teaching" em the ropes.
