    Our chicks are nine weeks old and are eating grower crumbles.
    Right now they are segregated from the older hens, but I am planning to put them together at about 12 weeks.
    They won't be laying yet so how do I feed them their crumbles without the hens getting it, and how do I keep the chicks from eating the hens' layer pellets?
