    OK so my chicks are 8 and 9 weeks old,, 2-giant jerseys 2 buff brahmas, 2 easter eggers
    when do i start feeding them the feed i give my 2 yr old comets? I got them as pullets no idea at what age 2 yrs ago, when i was new to this,

    I just penned in an area out in the coop for the chicks, and Hansel and Gretal (my 2 yr olds)
    are crowing like roosters,,peeking in the coop,,,(they lost there 4 sisters to a fox,,free ranging, and have been penned up since)

    got 1/4 bag of medicated chick feed left, and a full bag of un medicated,,

    getting a separate outside pen set up this week for the chicks, and hope to slowly integrate the wee little ones in with the BIG girls little by little
