    How much these little chicks can eat. I just brought home my six new 4 week old babies and placed them in the brooder. The minute the food went in they went nuts like they'd never seen food before. I had to refill their feeder after about 30 minutes. They are eating NON-STOP! I can't believe how cute they are.

    I know!!! I look down at my 8 little chicks and wonder where they could have possibly put 2 cups of food [​IMG]
