. Chicks require a broad variety of nutrients. You're best bet

Hello and welcome to BYC

I'm sorry, I don't understand your question? Is the chicken 1 day old or do you need to feed it for one day until you can get to the feedstore?

A day old chick doesn't need to eat yet. Actually they are o.k. for the first 2-3 days without food. After that you should give it chick starter, but if you can't get any feed it a mix of bread crumbs and egg yolk. But try and get some chick starter anyway. It's formulated for chicks and meets all their nutritional requirements.

For a day or 2, yes. Have you got a feed store near you where you can get chick food?

get some corn and break it into very very tiny pieces almost like dust and you chick can eat that meanwhile you get some proper feed.

Also my chickens love house scraps such as rice or beans or something small..

Best of luck with your chicks.
