    Is it bad to provide food and water only a day after they hatch? I know you can wait 3 days.

    Quote:No I think we all do it once they are in brooder and out of bator-just make sure you dip their beaks in the water-just the tip of beak-so they know what it is and where to get it-0the food I sprinkle on bottom of brooder and they just eat it up and look it out when hungry.
