I just got a black copper maran chick that's 3 weeks old. I was told it needs 2 weeks of heat so I have it in a small makeshift brooder with some heat lamps at 32oC (is that ok?). But I don't have any chick start right now only gamebird starter from when I used to have quails. Is it ok to use gamebird starter instead of chick starter? How long will it need the starter for? I was given some pullet feed but I assume that's given after the starter? I'd rather not get chick starter if it can manage without it until it needs the next type of feed since I don't plan on getting more chicks anytime soon. On a side note the chick was sold to me as a rooster although I'm not quite sure how you can tell when they are so young. But my plan is to use the rooster to cross with my bantam araucana to produce offspring that are olive eggers. So another question is would there be any problem introducing a very young rooster to 2 year old hens?
