    Hi! I'm trying not to go overboard with the start up costs of getting our first flock of 6 hens. I am getting pullets at 6 weeks. Can 6 week old gals eat from a regular adult hanging feeder or do I need to buy a baby feeder? I am aware on hanging the feeder at the appropriate height. Thank you!

    As long as they can reach the food and can't hurt themselves in any way it should be fine. I've made feeders out of milk cartons before when I was short a couple.
