My hens have hatched 3 chicks and there are more on the way. The lady at the TS told us we had to separate them because if they eat the adult food or the older chickens eat the baby food that they could die??? This makes no sense to me because chickens have been raising their own for how long before humans? I'm not sure what to do. I have been told to just let momma do her job and they will be just fine. PLEASE, if anyone can help me out with this let me know asap. I certainly don't want to lose any!
