Hi all. I've been reading the forums for a few months, but have a few questions. First off, my local TSC is OUT of chick starter feed....and they aren't sure when they are getting more. Does anyone have a decent online supplier that hasn't killed them on shipping? I did give them a bit of yogurt for a treat, but they haven't had grit yet, so I don't want to give them anything else. If worse comes to worse, what can I feed them. I know oatmeal is another good treat...but what will work as actual FOOD until I can find more chick starter? Also, is there special grit for baby chicks, or will any chicken grit work? Also, is there any way to tell if the chicks are getting enough water? We had the traditional water thing (with the jar on top) and no matter how I elevated or surrounded it with paper towels, they managed to muck it up. Of course, they are getting real feathers now and think they are quite the big girls, and able to fly up on top of anything (flinging litter and feathers and dust as they do so). Anyway, I'm experimenting with the water bottle thing. The only one I got is heated (not necessary now, but will be in the winter...I figured why not). http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=18379 They seemed to figure it out quickly and I do see them drinking from it. Before I worried that they weren't getting enough clean water because it was ALWAYS nasty, not I worry that maybe they just can't get enough out! Any way to tell? They seem healthy and happy. Thanks in advance for your help!
