    Chick starter......... if they are freshly hatched sometimes they won't eat anything for a day or two which will give you a little time to get some.

    You have asked this question on several posts. It is being answered in all of them. The required food for chicks is:

    Chick starter

    Go to a feed store and ask for it..they will know exactly what you need.

    Get the POWDERED CHICK STARTER - It comes in 25 and 50 pound bags. AND some place will sell it by the pound My sister said her Agway let her get 10 pounds.. My Store will not sell that way.
    IF they say they only have crumble starter buy it any way and out some in a thick bag and smash/cruch it with the rolling pin
