Ummm....called tsc this a.m. asked when chicks arrive? about a month. Tsc we site says hoover hatchery (Iowa), so I asked if they get chicks from ideal (Cameron-about 30 miles)? He said he didn't know-they come in the mail 🙄
They aren't the 'sharpest tools' in the shed @ TSC

A beaky twerp View attachment 2491143 View attachment 2491144 and she got me again today. Any suggestions on a stop. She's nor aggressive or mean just nips at me when I feed. I guess she's hungry. 1🤔
Possibly do not get cutsie and hand feed them? Not one of my birds get close they get out of my space when I feed. That is something my entire flock respects(my space). Even the roosters do the "chicken little" if I am near.

Never hand feed. Not sure exactly whats going on. I have been limiting feed (since I got them). Maybe they think their starving? Over anxious? See feed bucket and trying to hurry up the feed?
3 cornish x
2 cups of feed 2 x a day. The evening feed is when she's nipping at me. Since its colder, are they needing more feed? Same amount split into 3 feeds?
1 cup a.m. 1 cup noon 2 cups nite?

Sadly I tried to get a mathematical answer like you are now suggesting at least twice over the last year & 1/2 with no luck....
Just told to keep the jugs full.....
