    when the chicks are young like days to 6 weeks old they get chick grit with their chick starter. then I can switch their feed to 25% and they can have scratch grit?
    This is what I am feeding now:

    20% chick starter--not grit but planning to get some. I have 3 weeks old chicks S/R don't know sex and 3 day old chicks pullets. I also am giving them just plain tap water.

    How will I keep the babies from eating what the older ones are when i combine my flock? I am totally confused!!!!

    Once the chicks are old enough to be integrated into the flock you could feed then something like gamebird feed or purina flockraiser. That is good for bird of all ages, but you will need to put out oyster shell for any hens that are old enough to lay.
