    Feed chicks free choice (unless they're cornish x) so feed and water during dayling hours. I leave it out all the time, but it's not like they eat/drink at night, I'm just not aways able to get out to the coop at first light.

    Just keep the feeder full at all times for chicks. When it gets down to the fine powered stuff, add more chick starter.

    As much as they want to eat. Food and water should be available 24 hours a day.

    My 10 5 week old bantams will eat almost a full feeder (a quart size) everyday. While I see a lot of food on the floor, it's not that much to make a big difference. (little piggies)
