    When my porcelan bantie hatches her eggs I have heard that she should be put back on layer feed to get her back to laying. My question is can i just keep her on the chick feed so that we dont get the feeds mixed up and poison are chicks [​IMG]

    Yes you can. Mom can eat the same chick starter food as her babies. I wouldn't want my new mom laying any time soon. She needs to take care of her babies. She will let you know when she is ready to get back to work and start laying again.
