So I have 5 chicks- 3 ameraucanas and 2 barred rock...the smallest of the bunch is an Ameraucana and the minute I put chick starter in the feeder she frantically pushes everyone else out of the way and scratches it ALL out if the feeder. why? is this normal? The others will eat it out of there no prob, but as soon as i refill she scratches it all out again! The cage is all clean and nice and she destroys the whole thing in a matter of minutes, not to mention I am going thru feed like crazy because she throws it all out and then it gets pooped on, so we start all over! My other question is they are about 4-5 weeks old now, can they eat something other than chick starter? what can i give them? what do i need to give them? if they are too young now when do i start different food?
