    It's good they found you. [​IMG] At their age, they should be eating a chick starter/grower until about 16 weeks of age. Since you have the 2, you can probably get a 25 pound bag of it for a reasonable price.

    Yes, we got that type of food from the nearby feed store. We showed him the pictures from the camera and that's what they suggested. they didn't know what kinds of chickens they were, so I'm really glad you all told us.
    Thanks:)

    I love nice people who take in stray animals... thank you for your kindness! (I'm sure the chicks appreciate it, too.)
