    My 1year old BO hatched out 2 chicks today ,she only had 2 eggs and both hatched , what do i feed all three of them ? do i use Medicated chick starter or flockraiser ? i'm worried i might hurt one of them if i feed the wrong thing...Any advice would be a huge welcome , thanks

    Chick starter/grower. This will help the momma hen regain what she has lost while sitting on eggs. You can offer a side of oyster shells too, if you want.
