Just wondering when mommies start showing their kids how to eat and drink? Is it about 3 days or so? I check a few times a day on the ones hatching and the new babes, and my one hen seems to be doing a fine job teaching her 5 kids to eat and drink. My other 2 hens are sharing the load and have 4 kids at the moment, one was born yesterday and 3 more over-night. I trust that they will learn to eat and drink as the others have even tho the mothers are still incubating?
