Simple enough question with a simple enough answer I am assuming but my mama said the only dumb question is the one unasked so there's that. 1) Should chicks have a never ending supply of food? If so until when? week what? 2) if the answer is "nope" then what should a feeding schedule look like through lets say week 1 through 6 or 7? I've got 3 and a half week old chicks and I basically fill the feeder when I notice its empty so that they have food on demand, should I be feeding them on some kind of schedule or is keep the feeder full the way to go? These little chicks are growing fast! they appear to be almost fully feathered, is that pretty normal for 3.5 week olds? or is it because I am feeding too much? or? New guy at this and I figured I'd ask since I couldn't find specific answers to those questions. Thanks! Nietz.
