The 3 W’s of chick care: Warm, watered and well-fed

Great care in the first few days will set chicks up for a lifetime of happiness and health. What does great chick care look like? We’re glad you asked! At Purina, chick care is built around the 3 W’s:

Warm – A warm, clean brooder is essential! 

Watered – Rehydration is key.

Well-fed – Give chicks the nutrients they need to thrive.
