    I just set my broody hen on some eBay eggs. I was wondering, when her chicks hatch, is it alright if she eats the chick feed? I don't want the chicks to eat Laying Pellets, but I also don't know if it's ok for her to eat chick feed. [​IMG] Help?

    Its fine to feed her chick feed. She will love it. you can also feed her layer crumbles til the babies come then switch to medicated start and grow crumbles.
