    I am new to the chicken field i recently got 6 new chicks and i have had them for about three days now and they seem to be doing great so far but i was just curious if they were eating too much because they are almost constantly eating this maybe normal but i just want to make sure because i do not want to over feed them thanks!

    As long as they have balanced chick feed ... let them babies eat as much as they want!

    They won't over eat. They are probably wasting as much as they are eating.

    Hello,
    As I am also learning, ours are 5 days old and amaze me with their eating ability. Eat, stretch, sleep, poop. Rinse and repeat.

    As the feed disappears, the feathers are squirting out. I've never seen such. Puppies grow fast and chickens faster.

    Enjoy
