We have 9 hens and a rooster in the coop/run and last two days ago we added in 7 chicks that are 6 weeks old. When I feed in the morning and afternoon the chicks leave their feeder (I keep chick starter in there all day for them) and head to the big chicken feeders and the adult hens head to the chick feeder. As long as the chicks are full and have chick starter available all day this won't be a problem will it? During the day while the big chickens are out free ranging the acre the chicks are usually within close proximity of their feeder and I see them head back several times a day to eat the feed and then they wander off to explore again. Can I let them continue this or do I need to find some way to keep the hens from the chick feed?
