Can chicks drink from watering nipples
I just found 3 chicks w/ one of my hens. "Surprise !"
The nest box is @2ft. off the ground. I leaned a wood ladder to the box for the chicks (since they were able to jump down); I figure they can run up the short wood ladder ?
Do I still give them chick feed ? They can't reach the water- is tomorrow ok ?
Do I give them Electrolytes ?
I "don't let them hatch eggs this was an Oops !" I don't do "Chicks !"
Chicks are a hassle- special feed- having them separate- trying to integrate them w/ the older birds. This was "my Last chick"; I just lost my Billy Bird last night.
She was 11 yrs & 4 mths to the day. Hatched 6-6-06 Passed 10-6-17 View attachment 1155212
