Chicks can walk, eat and squeak as soon as they hatch. Offer a bowl of water and special chick feed from the first day. Kasper Faunafood Kuiken Multimix is a high quality chick feed that contains all the necessary vitamins, minerals and proteins. When the chicks are four days old they can also digest fine broken grains. The broken grains next to the crumb ensure a good development of the crop and gizzard. They will spend the first few days mainly under mother's wings, but will start to roam around more and more. While the little ones discover more and more of the world around them, the mother hen will protect her chicks as best as she can.
