Hi, We are adding 2 new pullet Bantams (about 7 wks) with our existing 2, 11mth old hens. They free-range in the yard all day, however I just read somewhere that even a small amount of layer pellets can be harmful to the chicks’ livers etc if they eat it as it’s not for their development stage. I’ve raised the hens Layer pellets so the chicks can’t reach it, but what how do I stop them getting the pellets that fall on the ground? Are Layer pellets really harmful to the chicks, surely people have different age flocks running together all the time! Any advice please?
