    I recently bought 5 new chicks! I don't exactly know where to get chicken crumble [​IMG] What stores can I get them at? And what can I feed them until I get them!

    Wherever you bought chicks from should also sell food for them to eat. Chick starter is what they need. They would need grit to digest any other type of food and you probably don't have that. I get my chicken food from TSC, Mizes, or the co-op.

    Feed mills, feed stores and farm stores, all usually sell chicken feed. Where are you located?

    In an emergency, you could give them some rolled oats that had been ground or chopped up fine enough for them to eat. That won't have all the things they need to survive, but will keep them from starving temporarily. Where did you get your chicks from?

    Oh, I'm glad you got that all figured out. Good luck and enjoy those chicks.
