Will the chicks feed hurt the momma? I cant really mix the feed or they will try to eat hers.
Won't hurt the mamma.
No. In fact the extra protein and enrgy it contains could harldy hurt active hens. It lack's calcium, though, so if it will make up a significant part of the hens diet, offer them some oyster shell.
By the same token, avoid giving laying feed to chicks - the extra calcium it contains is bad for them.
