In the Brooder
- Apr 1, 2009
My tiny bantam hen just hatched 2 chicks. She was kicke out of her nest by my regular sized chicken who has gone broody and taken over the rest of the eggs. The chicks somehow got down a 4 foot drop to a new nest box on the floor with bantam mamma. I just bought medicated chick feed. I know it isn't good to feed that to adults. So should I take them away and put them in my brooder and hand raise them. Or leave them with mama and they'll never be social cause my other birds aren't. Then what do I feed the whole flock. I have 2 girls still laying.
