    when my chicks are 8 weeks i plan on moving them into the coop with my 2 other layers...do i really have to use grower feed because then my layers will be eating grower feed. is it alright if the chicks eat laying feed? If there is any simple way to make it so the chicks get grower feed and my laying hens get layer feed without eating each others, let me know! thanks

    From what I've read you can switch everyone to flock raiser and just add free choice oyster shell for the layers. I think it's still too early for your 8 wk olds to have all that extra calcium.
