I have 5 bantam chicks. They are still tiny, only about 5-6 weeks old. I bought a 50 pound bag of feed because I also have 4 Barred Rock chickens, and 3 ducks that are older. My problem is that when I bought the bag I did not realize that it was pellets not crumbles. My bantams seem to be having a little trouble eating them. I know they are at least getting some of the feed down, but they are dropping a lot and always seem hungry even when there is feed in there cage. I tried to break it up in a zip lock bag using a hammer. But that just turned it to dust and I am worried about them inhaling the dust. So I am wondering if I can just add a little bit of water either before or after I mash it up. I would just make it like a thick paste, not soupy. I have read different things about adding water right before I feed it to them and can't seem to get a straight answer on if its OK. If that's not OK is there any other things I can do so its easier for my little guys/gals to eat??
