    My older girls love cracked corn. My 8 week olds have also been eating it with them here lately. Do I need to stop giving them the corn since the youngster's are getting to it?

    It is okay for the young ones to have it as a treat, too, but I would give them chick scratch, which is ground up a bit smaller. Also, make sure they have grit available if they are not free ranging or in a pen with grit in the soil.
