Our two "surprise" chicks are integrating will with the flock. Surprising how deferential adult birds can be with chicks. If any of the hens get a grasshopper, it's like a chicken demolition derby until the original chicken gets the 'hopper down or someone gets it away. If a chick gets one, they look and hover but don't actively try to take it away. Anyway. I've been feeding the whole flow the chick starter/grower from the main feeder with extra oyster shells around. I also put some layer feed on the roof of the flock's "gazebo" which the chicks cannot reach as yet. At some point, they will and they may partake. How much layer feed does it take to hurt them? From all I can discover, it's a cumulative thing so I should have plenty of time to discover they can make it up there. May plan is that when I see they can, I'll move the layer ration to a less accessible locale or remove it from the chicken area altogether . Sound OK?
