    Well we just brought home 5 sweet 4 week old silkies [​IMG] I have searched around on here and I can't figure out how much to feed these chicks and HOW? Do I throw it in or place it in a bowl and how much and what? We have food that came with them from the farm we bought them but in my excitement I forgot to ask the basic question of HOW.

    Any tips! Any favorite foods? What all do you suggest? [​IMG]

    feed starter chick food you can get it at tractor supply or any feed store or farm store. You can probably get feeders at the same place. you can use a bowl but they will make a mess with it. they love to scratch.
