i have 2 chicks bresse/orphington cross that we hatched about 2 weeks ago. now we seen turkey poults at rural king were on sale yesterday. we bought 4 and put in same brooder as the chicks. should i feed them chick starter, or the showbird crumbles? or will the higher protein harm the chicks?
i also have a blue slate hen laying on a clutch of eggs, but also has 2 silkies who are with her (sharing responsability i assume). i just candeled the eggs and they were dark inside and looked like maybe hatching soon. should i take the silkies out and lock the hen in with some food and water? or leave the silkies in with her?
thanks for the advice and apologize for the lengthy book i wrote
