I have 6 baby chicks (1 week old) and the mother in a run about 3ft X 7ft. I have been feeding them all starter feed. I don't know how much to feed them and her. How much food do I feed them and how often? Do I need to feed the hen something else. I have just been scattering it on the ground. Our hen was free ranged with our rooster and we never fed them. They go to the barn and eat cracked corn and chicken feed. I am lost in knowing how to take of them but very excited in learning. I love to just sit and watch her and the chicks. Amazing how something so small knows how to scratch for food. LOL. Need advice on feeding. Please !!
