So I have 4 brand new chicks that hatched this week. I also have 13 layers and 4 roosters. I have a "chicken share" with some friends of mine - technically I own half the birds, they each own a quarter. We split feed costs and eggs accordingly. What I'm trying to figure out is how to feed the chicks and adults separately. I read that it can be harmful to the chicks to eat the layer feed. But how do I go about keeping them out of it? Will putting it up high work (as in, once they're big enough to reach it they'd be old enough to eat it?). And then really I should keep the adults out of the chick feed (esp since it's more expensive) but I'm not sure how to do that, either. But I need to figure it out because I need to put in a feed order and I need to tell the other ladies how much they owe me for feed.
