    HI there, I think they'll be alright, it won't kill them.They be fine okay, just give them their usual chic starter.
    When they they are that age they just don't need the extra calcium. [​IMG]

    Agree, it won't hurt them but the calcium over an extended period of time can lead to problems with bones. Get them back on the chick feed and they'll be just fine.

    Not to make light of it, but at least they got fed...
    They'll be fine. Just make sure they get the correct food from now on...At least you had help feeding them...
