    Do I have to show them more than once?

    Also when can I introduce them to my other two birds?

    Well when I got my chicks i dipped their beaks in water and waited until they took one sip on their own.
    They soon learn where to go for water. If you want to integrate, it depends on how old the chicks are and your other birds are.
    Hope this helped [​IMG]

    It did, seems they like sitting in the water more than drinking it. LOL and they found their food fast. These girls are 4 weeks and my other two (roo and hen) are 15ish weeks. I was thinking of making a little cage area in the coop tomorrow, so they can be together but be seperate.

    Thanks for the help.
