    When or if my eggs hatch, I know to leave the chicks in the bator for like 24 hours. But, my father-in-law told me that after I put them in the "brooder box" I'm going to have to teach them how to eat and drink? Is that true?

    When I put the chicks in the brooder I put each ones beak into the water dish, but they eat on their own if the chick starter is on a flat surface.
