How soon after hatching must I start giving the chicks water to drink?

How soon after hatching must I start giving the chicks their medicated chick starter to eat?

Is it okay if the mother hen eats the medicated chick starter, too, and, if not, how do I keep her out of it, if she is confined in a cage with the baby chicks?

Thanks in advance.

The best way to feed chicks it this. Make a 2' diameter ring of cattle fence. Put it in the coop with a chick feeder in the middle with the medicated feed in it. You will need a cover too. The chicks can get in and out through the fence, but not the hens.
