I have a small 12' square run with a 3.5'x4' coop. I currently have two EE pullet 9wks(in the run) and 4 Rhode Island Reds 3wks(in a tub under a light). I have added a ramp into the coop and additional wire on the lower two feet of the run and around the wooden fence too.
Chicks are getting medicated starter crumbles(recommended by the feed store) and pullets are getting laying pellets(also recommended by the feed store).
Is this right? I've read conflicting food recommendations.
At what ages/stages do I switch foods and give scraps?
When/how often do you feed cracked corn?
How should I introduce the chicks to the pullets?
Oh and the pullets refuse to enter the coop on their own, any suggestions?
I am so thankful for all you experts!!!!
