I just picked up 3 barred rock and 3 cornish X chicks on Wednesday from Estes Hatchery. I picked up 5lbs of their chick starter while I was there. When I got home I put a small bowl of the Greener Pastures recipe that I soaked for a few hours in the brooder along with the feeder full of the chick starter. They haven't even touched the chick starter yet! They have been too busy eating all the Greener Pastures recipe! I had to put the small bowl of the Greener Pastures inside the feeder because they were standing inside the bowl and the Cornish chicks were bullying the Barred Rocks a bit. Now they have easier access to the feed. The picture is a birds eye view of the setup. Obviously the Greener Pastures is at the bottom of the picture where the chicks are congregated. You can sort of make out the glass bowl inside the feeder. I decided to use a bowl since I soaked the grains and didn't want a moisture problem. I just sprinkled a bit of the dry Greener Pasutres mix over the chick starter hoping to get them to mix it up. Here is the link to the Greener Pastures Recipe.
