In the Brooder
- Oct 27, 2012
I have 4 laying chickens (RR) and am feeding them layer feed. I just introduced 2 younger chickens almost 3 mo old to the coop. I have a dish of their feed in there but am not sure which they are eating. I know the layer feed can be harmful to the younger chicks. How can this be handled? I also have 2 silkies, 1 almost 5 mo, one 4 who are still using the starter feed since the 2 month old ones were too. My silkies are alone in a small crated area and not in the coop but the rest are together. How does everyone handle feeding chicks of different ages until they reaching laying age? Also, does anyone have any advice on adding the silkies in with the rest of the flock. Those RR's can be kind of antisocial and I don't want my beauties getting hurt!
