David Bopp shared that for the first three days, he feeds the hen special egg food. He combines one egg yolk with one tablespoon Proteen 25 nestling food (Higgins Company). I have been making up six egg yolks at a time in the food processor and using three tablespoons Proteen 25 and three tablespoons CeDe nestling food. I put some regular nestling food on one side of the feeding dish and the yolk mix on the other side and they will feed the yolk mix first! Even the borders are feeding the yolk mix well!! After three days, you need to use regular egg food as this is too rich to continue beyond the three days. Too rich foods at about five days will cause the skin to get red and lacquer like fecal material can seal the vent resulting in chick death.
