    Thought I had it ready for my chicks this friday.. brooder, feeder, and waterer, poultry light, temperture, etc. Then I dug up the grower's feed that I bought a few months ago.... ops! It's broken and eaten by mice! So I throw the whole bag away.

    My chicks comes on Friday ... I can't get grower feed until Saturday. What should I do? Can I use layer's feed for a day? Help!!

    Sure. Not all the time, but a day or two, sure.
