Could really use the help! I was brooding a couple of hens and our first chick hatched today! I went to the feed store to get starter but they won't have any for 2 more days. Looked everywhere and couldn't find any. I know I should've definitely not waited until the chick was born, but here we are. Feeding it porridge oats now, and mixing it with a little bit of water, but is there anything else/something better I can feed it until the store is open again on Monday (two days from now)?
